Trump, the Left and the Dishonest Media

Last week President Trump tweeted that he was “looking forward to seeing the employment numbers at 8:30 this morning.” For that simple tweet the media had a collective mental break down, and just could not contain their outrage at the President for tweeting that he was looking forward to the job numbers announcement. One commentator even suggested that he may have broken the law. John King a reporter from CNN, in full self righteous mode said “I dare you, go back and look at Ronald Raegan, George H. W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, Barrack Obama, find a president of the United States talking about, tweeting about, communicating about the unemployment report before it came out.” For emphasis, he repeated; “I dare you!” Well, because of this pesky thing called the internet, here are some found instances of the holy one on three separate occasions during his supreme eight year reign, speaking about the job numbers before they were announced:

His holiness: We’re gonna get a jobs report at the end of this week which probably will indicate we’ve lost another half million jobs.

His holiness again: Tomorrow we’re expecting another dismal jobs report on top of the 2.6 million jobs that we lost last year

His holiness: Today we learned that in the previous week the number of unemployment claims jumped to twenty-six thousand.

Is it possible that CNN did not know that his holiness had commented on the jobs report before the official numbers actually came out. No! But these people are so blinded by their hatred of President Trump, that in their hyperventilating, all they could see was Trump committing  another egregious act. The economic news was not a reason to rejoice about the roaring economy, just a reason to find fault. Mind you, unlike his holiness; Trump did not say anything about the job numbers, except that he was looking forward to the report coming out. That was enough for the media to go crazy. What is wrong with these people? Absolutely incredible!!!

In another classic display of media hypocrisy and Trump derangement syndrome. Once again, the leftist media was fulminating over President Trump. This time it was over his tweet about pardoning himself. Now, whether or not the President could pardon himself is not the question. It is not even worth the discussion. The issue is that President Trump did not just wake up and decided to tweet about pardoning himself.  Knowing how President Trump works though, there is no doubt that he was all to pleased to antagonize the media a bit, and of course they fell for it. The question was raised by the political hack disguised as a journalist called George Stephanopoulous. Stephanopoulous raised the question out of the blue, and asked the President’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani about President Trump pardoning himself. Giuliani laughed. He answered that he probable can but he also replied and said “Pardoning himself would be unthinkable and probably lead to immediate impeachment.” He also said, ”And he has no need to do it, he’s done nothing wrong.” Here’s Giuliani again; “I think the political ramifications would be tough, pardoning other people is one thing, pardoning yourself is tough.” Sometime after that, Trump sent out the tweet talking about pardoning himself. The hypocritical media smelled blood once again and they pounced. Here is the problem. These same charlatans, when they thought that Hillary Clinton was going to be the President, were quite pleased to write gleeful pieces about the option to pardon herself if she was indicted as President. Do these people believe that the average American is asleep and can’t see their blatant, naked hypocrisy. They are so outraged by the legitimate election of this man to be President of the United States that they have lost any residue of fairness that they once had. 

Jim Acosta, whose primary mission in life as a CNN “reporter” is to embarrass the Trump administration, wasted no time attacking Kim Kadashian’s visit to the White House last week to discuss prison reform. Once again, don’t get too caught up in the issue of whether or not Kim Kadashian should be going to the White House to discuss anything. That is not the main issue at hand. That could be argued many ways. Let’s look at Mr. Acosta’s response. It is just astonishing. Don’t forget, this man is a reporter, he is not a commentator or another talking head. He is not a Sunday morning bloviator for crying out loud. He is a reporter! Listen to him: “forget the fact that Kim Kadashian is at the White House here today. What planet that is…anything resembling normal, because it’s not. She shouldn’t be here talking about prison reform. It’s very nice that she is here, but that’s not a serious thing to have happened here at the white house.” This is the same dude who had a very flattering interview with John Legend after Legend had visited the White House when god was the President. When god was President, celebrities basically had their own wing at the white house and the media was fine with that. These media elites Never had an issue with Legend, and the host of other Hollywood luminaries discussing policy with god. This guy Jim Acosta practically dId obeisance to Legend after Legend went to discuss prison reform with god, but Acosta is so filled with rage at the Trump Presidency that while criticizing Kadashian, he even forgot his own glowing interview with John Legend. Did he not think that people would immediately point out his hypocrisy. Do these mindless sycophants not know that the internet exists, and that they cannot get away with this stuff like they used to at one time? Well they do know, but they simply do not care. Promoting the leftist agenda is their main focus and they are willing to embarrass themselves doing it.

There have been reports that Robert Mueller plans to demand some witnesses in the Trump “Russian collusion” investigation turn over their cell phones for investingtors to inspect their encrypted messaging programs, and “potentially view conversations between associates linked to President Donald TrumpI.” Sean Hannity the conservative talk show radio jock sarcastically said “if I advised them to follow Hillary Clinton’s lead, delete all your emails, and then acid wash the emails and hard drives on the phones, then take your phones and bash them with a hammer into little itsy bitsy pieces, use BleachBit, remove the SIM cards, and then take the pieces and hand it over to Robert Mueller, how do you think that would work out for everybody? Hannity rightly concluded “I’m sure the result would not be the same as Hillary’s.” Believe it or not, the leftist “media watchers” took Hannity to task for his “advice.” These people do not even see the irony in their outrage. Have they forgotten the things that Hannity sarcastically mentioned are what Hillary Clinton literally did to her system after she was subpoenaed by authorities to present it for review. The same people who are outraged by Hannity for making his point, using sarcasm to point out the two tiered justice system when it comes to the Clintons have not to this day actually questioned Clinton about what she actually did. Instead they are mad at Hannity for sarcastically making a point telling the witnesses to do exactly what Hillary Clinton did and got away with doing. Wow! 

Roseanne and Her Racist Comments

Ok, lets talk about Roseanne and the stupid, racially insensitive comment that she  made about Valerie Jarret. Considering the history behind calling black people monkeys, apes, gorillas, etc. She should have known better than to use the term attacking Valerie Jarret. There is really no reason to resort to that kind of behavior. Name calling and personal attacks is the domain of the left and the Democratic Party machine. No one who calls him/herself a conservative (Roseanne is not a conservative) should engage in that behavior. It is inexcusable and there is no way to spin it. She is wrong for resorting to ad hominem attacks. There is no one in conservative circles who will defend her comment. The exception of course is that trolls exist on all sides of the political spectrum, and you will always find some faceless trolls defending this type of behavior on the internet. Does the absolutely racially insensitive comment mean that Roseanne is a racist? Hardly, it makes her a person who made a racially insensitive comment, and nothing more. She should be called out for it. She should be chastised, but by no means should she be shunned, and ostracized from the rest of society for her comment. Let us not fool ourselves here either, Roseanne has said some silly things in the past, she can be quite the kook, and her attempts at humor can be very cringe worthy. The reason that the backlash is so severe this time is because she is an unabashed Trump supporter. In addition to her comment, she made the mistake of attacking a prophet of the messiah. Valerie Jarrett is one of the main promulgators of leftist ideology, and a messenger of the holy one known as Barrack Obama (praise be unto his name). Beyond the racially insensitive statement itself is the act of blasphemy by Roseanne. That, ladies and gentlemen might be her biggest offense.

As the media, Hollywood, Democrats and the left in general react to Ms. Barr’s personal racially tinged attack, let us examine their behavior. This is not to excuse Roseanne, but to point out the utter shameless hypocrisy of these charlatans who traffic in name calling and racism. They are only capable of indignation when  an offense is committed by someone with whom they disagree politically. Let us examine some of the behavior that they have been willing to tolerate when the vitriol was directed against a conservative or Republican.

Does anyone remember when a reporter from “The Most Trusted Name in News” described President George W. Bush as a Monkey. She worked for CNBC at the time. The President was with other world leaders that she was describing, and she said “I am not talking about the monkey.” To clarify, she then said, “the monkey in the middle.” Her fellow broadcasters had a good time yukking it up, having a really good time as she called the President of the United States a monkey, while she was on the air, giving a report. Back then George W. Bush was routinely described as a monkey, but back then that was acceptable behavior. Check it out here. 

Here is an excerpt of a Jimmy Kimmel monologue, where he calls President Trump an orangutan: “Here is another weird exchange. At one point during their meeting, Trump noticed something on Macron’s suit, and this was a historic moment because, to the best of my knowledge, it was the first time a world leader ever publicly brushed dandruff off another world leader…you know what, that’s really what orangutans do. They groom each other.” There you go, the classic example of leftist tolerance.

We have an example of Bill Maher “in jest, as comedians are wont to do” as CNN (The Most Trusted Name in News, in case you missed it) said. Maher said that he would pay “$5 million to a charity if Trump could prove he wasn’t the “the spawn of his mother having sex with an orangutan.” No big thing, that was “in jest.” How about when the black actor Michael Che called the President a cheap cracker on Saturday Night Live. The only thing that followed that was thigh slapping, rib tickling laughter, not righteous indignation. Let’s not forget their attacks on Herman Cain, Condoleezza Rice, Clarence Thomas and every black conservative.

It is easy to go on and on about leftists and Democratic Party intolerance because they have a very sordid history of this type of behavior. The examples are numerous…ok just to indulge a bit, here are a few. It was Bill Maher who called Sarah Palin a MILF, a c***, a t**, he called her down syndrome child a retard, he called she and Michelle Bachman “boobs”. Joss Whedon said that he wanted a rhino to f*** Paul Ryan. Stephen Colbert said that the only thing that Donald Trump’s mouth is good for is being Vladimir Putin’s c*** holster. Tom Arnold told the young black female conservative to “go suck racist d***,” for no other reason that she is a conservative. Samantha Bee recently called Ivanka Trump a feckless c***. That is just a small smattering of their vitriol. When a blogger wrote that Ann Coulter should kill herself, this is what Joy Reid said: “You know, it would kill her, and I think I’m cool with that…” Anyway, as noted; in the interest of brevity, lets end with those few examples. The left was fine with ll of this. Conservatives should not be intimidated, cowered or go into hiding because the “tolerant” people on the left are pontificating and pointing their fingers over this incident. These people wallow in this behavior all the time. This is their territory. It is who they are, so keep perspective. Sure it was a terrible thing that Roseanne said. There is no excusing it, but that’s life. People say and do bad things from time to time. This one statement does not make her a racist, and in addition; it does not reflect conservative values.

Memorial Day, Why They Sacrifice Their Lives

“We hold these truths to be self evident, that all men are created equal and endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life liberty and the pursuit of happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among men deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.” 

The idea that gave birth to America was unheard of at that time. It was a brand new concept on governance. Until that time, people’s lives were subject to the whims of monarchs, tyrants and the ruling class. People questioned the legitimacy of the ruling class to their own peril. Then out of nowhere, a group of upstarts introduced this new concept that Governments are accountable to the people, and that people have the right to change their Government when the Government fails the people. The idea in itself was revolutionary, and if allowed to take root would greatly upset the status quo, and cause major problems for the ruling class.

The founding fathers declared their independence based on the ideas found in the declaration of independence and broke their ties to the British Empire. The mighty British empire could not allow these ideas to become established and they sent their powerful Military to ensure that they did not. Standing in the way of the British though was a small group of men who believed so strongly in their ideas that they were willing to die for them, and many of them did. This began the process that has lead to the country that we have today, but to get here we have always had to call on the select few who are willing to fight for, and even give their lives to preserve the ideals on which the country was founded. 

The founding fathers and their posterity continued to build on the principles that were at the heart of their revolutionary ideas. Built into the system that they developed were the mechanisms that allowed them to continue improving on policies that were unjust. With these new ideas and the way of thinking, America made tremendous forward strides politically, economically, socially, militarily and in other ways, at an unprecedented pace. Quite frankly the world had never seen anything like it before nor since. The concept that all men are created equal and that freedom is a gift, and a right from God, not the Government, allowed mankind to thrive as never before. Nations that adopted aspects of Americas system experienced similar prosperity. In stark contrast, places that outright rejected these principles experience the extreme opposite. People live in poverty, corruption is widespread, people fear for their lives, curable diseases still wreak havoc on the health of citizens and they often have much lower mortality rates. 

Today, as America stands as the most prosperous and free nation that the world has ever known, many Americans wake up each day without a thought of what is required for them to continue enjoying the freedoms they have, and the prosperity they enjoy. Many complain about all that is wrong in America without ever fully appreciating that the lives we live , the standard of living that we are blessed to have, simply did not exist before this great American experiment. This is how good life is in America! It is so good, that because it is not perfect; many think that they live in a fundamentally unjust society. In other words, they hold the country to a standard of perfection that is impossible to meet. Americans who think this way have the right to do this. Those who take for granted the life that they live can do so because of those who stand as the guardians of  our way of life. Those who stand ready to defend this nation are prepared to do it against all enemies, whether these enemies are foreign or domestic. 

While people literally sleep, oblivious to the dangers in the world all around them, there are men and women who put their lives on the line every day to keep Americans safe. America’s history is filled with men and women of this calibre. They were present in the battle of Lexington, and they were there again at the battle of Louisiana when a few rag tag citizens resisted and pushed back the mighty British Military one more time in their second attempt to teach these upstart Americans a lesson. The grit and determination of these Americans committed to keeping their countrymen safe was demonstrated by the “lost battalion” in the Argonne Forest, and in trenches across Europe in world war one. They stormed the beaches of Normandy in World War two. Many of them never made it back alive. They gave their lives on the  Korean Peninsula in the forgotten war and when the nation was divided, they gave their lives in the Jungles of Vietnam. The story is no different today as many families mourn the loss of loved ones killed in Iraq or Afghanistan. 

Some say all that is needed, is for everyone to put down their arms and no one will ever have to die in needless wars and conflicts again. This naivety ignores what we know about human nature. Human beings have a propensity toward violence and evil in general. Many have no problem giving in to this tendency, so whereas in a perfect world  there would be no need for Armies; the reality is that we do not live in a perfect world. In this reality, we will continue to depend on those who we memorialize on this day. As we honor the memory of those who die in service to our country let us not forget our law enforcement officers who also give their lives to keep our citizens safe. 

Have a solemn yet happy Memorial Day. 

Stormy Daniels Day, MS 13 and other Musings…

Stormy Daniels Day

The city of West Hollywood dedicated 23 May 2018 to a woman by the name of Stephanie Clifford. Officials of the city dedicated the day to her because in “these politically tumultuous times,” she has “proven herself to be a profile in courage, by speaking truth to power even under threats to her safety and extreme intimidation.” So in recognition of her bravery the City of West Hollywood called the day Stormy Daniels day. Stormy Daniels is the name she goes by in her chosen career as a “porn star.” So to be clear, this pseudo prostitute whose claim to fame is having sex with multiple partners in front of a camera, and who has done nothing note worthy is being honored because she reportedly had sex with the President of the United States before he ran for office, and while he was already married to his current wife. She claims that she was paid one hundred and thirty-thousand dollars to keep quiet about the tryst. She signed a none disclosure agreement to not talk about the affair, but after Donald Trump was elected President she broke the none disclosure agreement, though she previously vigorously and repeatedly denied that she had any sexual encounter with the President. She is now challenging the none disclosure agreement, telling anyone who would listen that she did indeed have sex with the President and is now suing him for defamation. For this act of courage, she has been deemed a hero and awarded a key to the Democratic City of West Hollywood. No one in the Democratic Party run city was found more worthy that Ms. Stormy Daniels to receive this prestigious award at this time. Ok then…!!!

MS 13, President Trump, and the Democratic Party

The motto of MS-13 is “rape, control, kill.” That is literally their slogan. These criminals who have gained a foothold in the United States and have been terrorizing neighborhoods where they have established their presence were called animals by President Trump. This upset the left so much that people like Nancy Pelosi, Keith Ellison, the Southern Poverty Law Center, the media and other left wing stalwarts ran to the defense of the this brutal group that once stabbed one of their murder victims over a hundred times, beheaded him and ripped out his heart. Joy Reed the MSNBC pundit once told us that only people who watch Fox News know anything about this violent group of thugs. That statement tells you what you need to know about the media in this country. Mayor De Blasio let us know that calling MS 13 animals was an attack on Latinos. What does one say to that…honestly?!? This is your Democratic Party.

The Left’s Penchant for Vitriol and Violence

Tomi Lahren, the conservative firebrand, recently had someone throw water at her while she  was leaving a restaurant after having brunch with her mother. Ms Lahren regularly speaks out harshly against leftist ideology, and because of this she is quite frequently a target of the left’s vitriol. This is not anything strange for the left. Violence and vitriol are a staple in their basket of tricks, and they show no signs of changing their tactics. Why would they change their tactics? They have convinced themselves that those who do not hold to their ideology are not just people with opposing views, but that they are bad people, on par with the KKK, Hitler’s brownshirts and other nefarious groups. This then gives them an excuse to visit violence on those who disagree with their leftist ideology. What was encouraging in this instance with Tomi Lahren though, is that some prominent people (not nearly enough) on the left came out and condemned the behavior of the woman who threw water on her. So while internet trolls were celebrating the woman who threw the water at her, many of the voices that really matter spoke out strongly against it. That is to be commended. Observe one more time however that the media did not whip up the same hysteria over this incident that is such an intrinsic part of the left’s standing operating procedure, as they do for any similar incident that may happen on the right.  Whether it is sales people harassing a black customer for wearing a make America great again hat while patronizing a popular place of business, whether it is a crazed Bernie Sanders supporter shooting up a baseball game in an attempt to kill Republican Senators, or Antifa wreaking havoc on the streets or college campuses; the left often gets away with their untoward behavior. These people are dangerous and Americans need to reject their extremism. 

The Left and the Israeli Palestinian Conflict

In another demonstration of the Democratic Party and the left’s moral bankruptcy, all over the world they have been condemning Israel for violence on the Israeli border. The Democratic Party and the left in general have been accusing Israeli Soldiers of wantonly killing innocent protestors. It is not possible that these people do not know that Hamas has been instigating the border unrest, by sending around 40000 people to breach the Israeli borders. Hamas has been using Molotov cocktails and other explosives, incendiary kites, burning tires, throwing rocks, and using civilians as shields at a dozen points along the Israeli border in their attempt to wreak havoc, and have their members infiltrate Israel. Never has there been a case where the villains are more clear and obvious than in the Israeli, Palestinian conflict. That does not stop the left though from constantly attacking Israel as the wrong doers in the conflict.  The reason for the chaos at the Israeli border is because of the terrorist group Hamas, the Palestinian Authority and Islamic Jihad whose stated goal is to destroy the state of Israel. The media however and the Democratic Party are all too happy to blame everything that has happened on the Israeli border on the Israelis, whose only crime is that that once again they have been forced to defend their borders while showing tremendous restraint with the use of force. Of the 63 Palestinians who have been killed, 54 of them belong to Hamas (by Hamas own admission). None of that seems to matter though. As long as the Democratic Party and the left could blame the unrest on the Israelis, and by extension Donald Trump, because of his decision to move the American Embassy to Jerusalem; that is all that matters. Once again, this is the modern Democratic Party. They will get back into power again eventually one day. When they do, we will deserve the Government that we get.

 

Oh, How the Left Cares about Women

If anyone wants to know how hypocritical the left is on women’s issues look at the way they are currently treating the first female selected to head the CIA, Gina Haspel. Whereas leftist Senators had no problems confirming the man, John Brennan, who was selected by King Barrack the great to fill the same position, so many of them are against Miss Haspel, though she and Brennan hold the same position on enhanced interrogation. Now Democrat Senators claim that they cannot vote for her because she refuses to say that it was immoral for the CIA to use enhanced interrogation on the  three terrorists they waterboarded years ago to extract information from them. 

     Madeline Albright once famously said “there is a special place in hell for women who don’t help each other.” This was meant as dig at women who did not support Hillary Clinton’s candidacy for . True it was meant to be funny, but by the same token it also gives some insight into the Democrats penchant for identity politics when it suits them. Not too be outdone, Michelle Obama a few months ago said the following, “any woman who voted against Hillary Clinton voted against their own voice.” She further elaborated by asking the following, “what does it mean for us as women that we look at those two candidates, as women, and many of us said, that guy, he’s better for me, his voice is more true to me?” She then topped it off with this gem “well, to me that just says you don’t like your voice. You like the thing you’re told to like.” So in Michelle’s Obama’s world, if you are a woman and you voted for Trump, it could not be because you believe that Hillary did not forcefully make the case to vote for her as President. And even if she did not make a good case, who cares? She is a woman and so are you, that is enough reason to vote for her. Her history of using the Clinton foundation to sell favors to corporations and foreign governments while she was the Secretary of State does not matter. It is of little consequence if as a woman you were concerned about Hillary Clinton’s history of corruption, or you were bothered by reports that she tried to destroy the lives of many of the women who accused her husband of rape, sexual assault or sexual harassment. It does not matter If  you just could not get over the recording of Hillary laughing as she talked about how she successfully defended a man, who, in her own words; she believed was guilty of raping a twelve year old girl. She is a woman gosh darn it! Vote for her. That is what Michelle Obama thinks of women. 

     Observe that Michelle Obama and Hillary Clinton will never run to the defense of women in the Trump administration who are constantly under fire from the liberal media, late night comedians, Hollywood and the left in general. They do not extend the same courtesy to women on the right. They remain deafeningly silent as personal and vitriolic attacks are constantly launched at these women day in and day out. Neither of them ran to the defense of Sarah Huckabee Sanders when she was so savagely attacked the other night at the White House Correspondents Dinner. After all, Sarah Huckabee Sanders is just a liar who deserves all of the hostility directed at her. She is not a real woman. She works for Trump! She deserves what she gets. She is not Hillary!  None of the defenders of women had any praise for Kelly Ann Conway when she became the first woman to successfully run a Presidential Campaign. The media literally never ever says a positive thing about Miss Conway since she successfully ran Trump’s campaign. 

     As the left continues to disrespect these women and their accomplishments, we hear not a word from people like Hillary Clinton and Queen Obama. They have not spoken in the defense of Betsy Devos, the education secretary, as the media and the left treat her like she is a criminal with a communicable disease.      

     Check out this statement by Hillary Clinton “the more professionally successful we are, the less people like us.” “Historically, people like me when I’m serving a supporting role… But the minute a woman, at least in our country, stands up and says ‘I’d like a chance to lead’… everything changes.” So as far as she is concerned, the fact that she set up a private email server while she was Secretary of State, and erased 33000 emails from said server when she came under scrutiny for it was not the reason that many women did not vote for her. The fact that she looked at Trump’s supporters and called them a basket of deplorable was not the reason that women chose Trump, or the fact that she ran a God awful campaign is not the reason she was rejected at the ballot box by so many women. It is because the country is afraid of electing a woman. Those women in the Trump administration though, as one MSNBC commentator mused; they are just weak. They are also incompetent, and immoral women for even working for Trump. They deserve all of the virulence that is constantly lobbed at them. This is the left and the Democratic Party ladies and gentlemen. Bring them back into power with your eyes wide open.

Some Thoughts on Bill Cosby and more Random Thoughts on Kanye West

Shameless Comparisons to Emmit Till

Why do so many black people compare their challenges to the Emmit Till situation? Emmit Till was a young black teenager who was savagely beaten and killed by vicious white thugs during the height of Jim Crowe. Emmit apparently made the error of looking at a white woman the “wrong” way, and saying something to her. And for that, he deserved to die, in the minds of the savages who mercilessly took his life from him. After his body was discovered, his mother famously left his casket open for the world to see what they did to her son. Her brave act awakened the conscience of the nation, and helped to bring the plight of black people in America to the forefront of politics. Black people indeed suffered immensely, and it is because of the courage that so many black people displayed during the civil rights movement that the country was able to make progress and get to where we are today. It is a shameful period of American History, but the beauty of America is that since its founding the nation has continually worked on fixing its flaws. Today despite all of the progress that America has made, people continually hold on to the past, and refuse to acknowledge how blessed we are as Americans to live in such a diverse society that so beautifully weaves all the different threads into such an amazing fabric. Do we have problems, of course we do, but no society is perfect, especially societies that have so much diversity? That is why it is always so disheartening to see so many black people gleefully dancing on the grave of Emmit Till, and desecrating his memory, by constantly comparing their troubles to what he suffered. The latest person to do it is Camille Cosby. It is another clear instance of making excuses and blaming the white man for the problems of the black man. What she is doing is no different than what we have grown accustomed to seeing in many areas of the black community. If it’s the white man’s fault then there is no need for personal responsibility, right? It is the white man who needs to get it right. Black people have to realize that we are no different than any other ethnic group.  We are no better or no worse, because people are people. Race really does not matter. We have the same potential. We have the same opportunities, we can be just as innovative. We can ascend to the same heights, and achieve the same greatness that other groups have accomplished. All it takes is the willingness to do what is necessary for these things to happen. Being a victim is not cool.

More on Bill Cosby 

The Bill Cosby situation is so sad.  Such an icon! Here we have a man loved and admired by so many around the world having such a crest fallen demise. The man’s influence on the culture cannot be overstated. His stand up and other comedy routines was genuinely funny. It was clean and family friendly. He even dabbled in music and had some pretty funny albums. He never felt the need to shock and be provocative in the way that so many modern day entertainers do. Shock value for the purpose of shock value was not his thing. When he did gather attention it was for the right reasons. He was challenging young black men to do better with their lives.The character that he depicted as Cliff Huxtable on the Cosby Show with his very functional family gave us reason to laugh, admire, and even strive for the ideals that they portrayed. Many families lived vicariously through the Huxtable family. The family that he and the cast of characters on his show portrayed was not the stereotypical image that many have of a black family in America. They were educated and successful in their professions and personal lives.

The characters that he portrayed in his movies were truly memorable (who can forget him in Uptown Saturday Night, or his cartoon characters in Fat Albert and the Cosby Kid). The man was a role model extraordinaire (or so we thought). It is so disappointing to see a man so greatly respected, and admired fall so far, but there is also a lesson to be learned. These celebrities are people, human beings with the same frailties, battling the same demons and dealing with the same issues as everybody else. It is often more difficult for them because fame and fortune could give people a deluded image of themselves. They often come to believe their own hype and think that they can get away with anything. Despite all of that, it is still sad to see this happen to Bill Cosby. As, sad as it is to see him fall from grace like this. It is even more sad for the woman who he was found guilty of assaulting, and the dozens of others who have credibly accused him of sexual assault. Who would have thought that this beloved icon had such a dark side that would make him commit such despicable, dastardly, evil acts against these women. He may have gotten away with it for decades, which probably made him feel that he was untouchable, but in the end, what was done in the darkness came to light and justice was served. If anyone feels bad for Bill Cosby it is understandable, but the woman that he is guilty of assaulting and the many others who accused him deserve more empathy.

More Random Thoughts on the Kanye West Saga

Snoop Dog portrayed an image of Kanye West in “whiteface” a coupe of days ago.This is to mock Kanye for saying the things that he said recently. So the question is, are the people who always get so upset about every portrayal about white people doing “blackface” no matter the artistic intent, just as offended by Snoop Dogg’s clear intention to mock Kanye West by portraying him as a white man? Is their any outrage over this apparent racism? Again, this is not to give black people a hard time. It is said in the hope that at least one black person would start questioning all of the nonsense that black people have been fed over such a long period of time.

Goodness, it gets worse. Kanye West does not only proclaim his love for Dr. Trump. He quotes Dr. Thomas Sowell, and now we find out that Kanye also listens to the white “hate monger” Dr. Jordan Peterson. What is next? At this rate Kanye could end up saying “all lives matter,” that the police do not target black men, or such crazy nonsense  While it is absolutely glorious and hilarious to behold this pop icon upsetting the apple cart, it is even more hilarious to see the reaction of the left. Conservatives had better not pin too much hopes on Kanye West though. Don’t get it twisted, it is great to see someone of his stature  standing up to the mob, but he is not the savior who is going to lead many black people off the Democratic plantation. In addition, Mr. West in the past has shown himself to be a little erratic, so, we’ll have to see if this enlightenment he has been experiencing in the last couple of weeks is real or just a phase. He is about to be tested like never before if it is indeed real. He will become a major target of personal destruction for the left and the Democratic Party. What needs to happen is for more black people, not only celebrities, but regular Joes on college campuses, in the community, on workplaces and all over the country to stand up and say that black people are not a monolith who owes the Democratic Party anything.  It is time to end this cultish, slavish allegiance to the Democratic Party. What has the Democrat Party done for black people? What!?! All they do is give black people stuff to get them dependent on the government. They give them just enough to keep them coming back for more, but never enough for them to become independent, and get off the Government teat. The Democratic Party is committed to giving black people hand outs instead of a hand up. The Democrats then label anyone who opposes their agenda as racist. That is it. That has been their modus operandi for almost 60 years. This is how they have attempted to redeem themselves after being on the wrong side of every civil rights movement in the country’s history. It is time to utterly reject these charlatans.

It was good to see Adidas refuse to give in to the mob demanding that they drop Kanye West for his comment about slavery.  And rightly so, too many businesses have refused to stand up to the leftist rabble rousers in the past. Many of these businesses cower in fear at the slightest prickling from the left with their bullying tactics, and their silly demands. Good to see Adidas showing a little courage. It takes  courage indeed to stand up to the leftist agitators. They pretend that they do not know what Kanye West meant when he made his comment about slavery, and they feign outrage while they always remain silent at the outrageous things that they constantly say about anyone or group who differs with them. They have gotten away with this craziness for far too long. It is time to start standing up to them. 

Some More Thoughts on Candace Owens, Kanye West, and Other Musings

That’s a lot of words, so you can suck racist Di**. Those are the words of Tom Arnold to the black female independent thinker Candace Owens. Observe that nothing in that statement is based on an argument. He simply hopes to insult her into shutting up. Who does she think she is after all? You see, young miss Owens thinks that too many black people are blindly beholden to the Democratic Party, and because of that blind loyalty, they do not even open their minds to consider other ideas. For the crime of thinking for herself, she has become a target of the political left who do not oppose her on intellectual grounds, but just based on the fact that she does not hold to the approved political opinion of what a black female should believe. She is constantly disrespected in the manner that Tom Arnold saw it fit to do. This alone should make black people wonder why it is that people on the left feel that they have license to viciously attack any prominent black person who dares to reject the dogma that black people are supposed to be Democrats. When so many white liberals believe that it is legitimate to personally attack, insult and treat black conservatives with such scorn, it should make antennas go up in the black community, but it does not. Instead, the vitriol directed to people like Candace Owens is tolerated, and if it was not for alternative media like Breitbart News, Fox News, the Drudge Report and the Daily wire, their treatment of these black conservatives would not even garner a mention in the liberal media (is it any wonder liberals hate Fox News so much?). There is a reason that people like Candace Owens are the target of so many white leftists, and black “leaders.” The reason is that she and others like her just might awaken black people to drop their tools and walk off the Democratic plantation. If this happens, the race industry would seriously be threatened and many of them do not have anything on which to fall back. Quite frankly, they are afraid of people like Candice Owens.

Kanye and Dr. Thomas Sowell

Yesterday, Kanye tweeted some sayings from Dr. Thomas Sowell…oh, oh! He is really in trouble now. Thomas Sowell! Are you kidding? Black people are not supposed to pay attention to people like Dr. Sowell. He has been labelled a sell out, an uncle Tom, a self hater and other names, because he has been appealing to the black community for decades to stop blaming the white man for their problems, to look inward, and to start making different decisions that would enable them to bring about change in their lives. Now Kanye West is quoting him on Twitter.?!? God have mercy on his immortal soul! Black people are not supposed to embrace Dr. Thomas Sowell’s way of thinking. Kanye West must really be losing it. Maxine Waters tweeted that he “is speaking out of turn.” “A rough translation of that is that Kanye West needs to know his place, and shut to hell up.” Not sure exactly where this whole Kanye West evolution is heading, but it is definitely interesting to watch. Hopefully it could lead to a mental revolution in the black community.

Crip Alert for Kanye

Check out this video from Snoop Dogg’s cousin. He put out a “Crip alert” to f*** Kanye up.” West committed the unforgivable sin of  challenging black people to rethink their politics. Of  course you would not see this news on MSNBC or CNN being looped over and over, and over again because it does not promote their agenda or their narrative. From viewing this video, hopefully many would understand why it is so important to forsake the left and the Democratic Party. Of course many would say that this gentleman does not represent the left or the Democratic Party, but this type of behavior, too often is tolerated on the left. You do not hear the same outcry for this type of behavior as if it was a conservative or a white person saying something as crazy. The story and the response would be something completely different. This man is calling on a street gang of black thugs, who have wreaked havoc in the lives of so many young black, men and terrorized black neighborhoods to “F*** Kanye a** up,” because Kanye West is challenging black peoples ideas about politics. And for that he deserves to have a Crip alert put out on him, and have a world of violence visited on him. Let that sink in!

Race Baiting and Trump

People need to realize that by constantly calling Donald Trump a racist does not make him one. There is a large swath of the country who vehemently disagrees with the opinion that the President of the United States is a racist. There are many unsavory things that one could truthfully and unequivocally say about him, but him being a racist is not one of them. That is an opinion meant to alienate people who support him. He is not a white supremacist. He does not hate black and brown people, neither does he hate women. Nothing in the man’s life points to any of this. The thing is that the race card has been played so often that it has cheapened the real serious issue of racism that still exists. If people become desensitized to racism it would not be because of Donald Trump, but because of the left crying race once too often, just like the story of the boy who cried wolf. So when the crazy left continues to tell black women or any other group that they should not support the President because he is a racist, that argument simply does not fly. They would have to do better than that. They will have to present more solid reasons than the ad hominem attacks that they have been launching since Trump came on the scene as a candidate.

The White House Correspondence Hate Fest

The White House Correspondence dinner proved once again that the media’s job in America is to discredit any Conservative, Republican, religious person, or anyone who holds traditional values. It was another hatefest for the left, another opportunity for them to portray themselves as edgy with their vile jokes and insults. Every year it is the same predictable schtick. This year was particularly awful and everyone is up in arms about the “comedy” routine of the guest speaker, but it is par for the course. People are saying that it is time to end the WHCD, but no way. Let it continue. Let these people continue to tell us who they are, by putting their hateful ideology on full display. By all means, let them continue. Observe that the WHCD guests never “roast” the Democrats. For eight years, none of the organizers of the WHCD ever found a comedian to make fun of President Obama. He was off limits. Despite everything that happened under his regime, it was forbidden to clown the holy one. He had a few things going for him. First of all he is slick. He has the ability to speak poison while making you feel inspired. He is a Democrat. He is a rabid liberal and most of all he is black. On the left, if it is one thing that you do not do, it is hold black people to the same standards. The left peddles in the soft bigotry of low expectations and expect to get a pat on the back because of it.
