Dem Sit-In Was Illegal Campaign Action

Pout-In

Those Democrats who staged a Sit-In in the well of the House of Representatives where much more than churlish and disrespectful of The People’s House – they were in violation of House Ethics laws regarding campaigning.

The fact this spectacle was really a fundraising event was pointed out by House Speaker Paul Ryan today:

At his Thursday press conference, Ryan held up printed copies of a fundraising solicitation. “House Democrats on the House floor. Your contribution will go to the DCCC,” Ryan pointed out. He continued by pointing to each fundraising box in turn, “Fifteen dollars, this one says try giving us 25 bucks, but if you want you can send us 50, a hundred, 250 dollars, 500 dollars, a thousand, because look at what we’re doing on the House floor. Send us money.”

“If this is not a political stunt then why are they trying to raise money off of this? Off of a tragedy. What they’ve called for failed in a committee in the House. The reason I call this a stunt is because they know this isn’t going anywhere. It already failed in the Senate.

The Democrats pouting in the well of the House of Representatives made it clear this was a publicity stunt when they circumvented the communications rules:

Cameras covering the House floor were turned off on Wednesday as Democrats staged a sit-in to try to force a vote on gun control legislation.

House Republicans control the House and the cameras that feed C-SPAN, and said they would be kept off until the House was back in session.

Without the live cable feed, Democratic members took to their smartphones to captures pictures of the floor, and Rep. Scott Peters (D-Calif.) used Periscope to live stream the event, though it is against House rules to broadcast from the floor.

Emphasis mine.

So we have fundraising fliers magically appearing during a 1.5 day stunt along with an apparently preconceived plan to circumvent the communications rules with new tech (tech most of these political dinosaurs would be clueless about).  Smells like a campaign fundraising event to me.

So is this ethical? Does this follow Federal Campaign Law and House Ethics rules?

Of course it does not:

Top Ten Things to Remember about Campaign Activity

  1. You may not conduct campaign activities in official buildings, using official resources, or on House time.

More here (House Ethics Manual):

This chapter addresses the laws, rules, and standards on four major subjects
relating to campaign and political activity, as follows:
  • The general prohibition against using official House resources for campaign or political purposes;
  • Campaign work by House employees, which must be done on their own time and outside the congressional office, and without the use of any House resources;
  • The solicitation, receipt, and acceptance of campaign contributions, and the general prohibition against taking actions in one‘s official capacity on the basis of political considerations; and
  • The proper use of campaign funds

As detailed below, official resources of the House must, as a general rule, be used for the performance of official business of the House, and hence those resources may not be used for campaign or political purposes.

It is clear the House of Representatives is not a place for political stunts or fundraisers. So these two dozen or so democrats who participated in this “Pout In” need to be sanctioned for a clear and disgusting use of The People’s House for a crass fundraising activity.

Congressional Democrats Stage Major Pout-In

Published by under 2016 Elections

Pout-In

The Congressional Democrats have done America a great favor this week.  By staging their “Pout In”, these lovely little Congress-Critters have forced congress to shut down early for the July 4th break:

The revolt in the House of Representatives entered a second day Thursday as protesting Democrats continued to demand votes on gun control measures opposed by Republicans.

While two dozen or so Democratic lawmakers camped out in the well of the House chamber, most of the GOP reps were long gone after Speaker Paul Ryan formally adjourned the body until July 5 during a raucous overnight session.

While this Democrat “Pout In” is just another sign of why Big Government is a Big Headache over a Non-Issue (everyone knows the legislation being proposed would not have avoided the Orlando Massacre), these clowns still deserve a big shout out.

Thank you Democrats, for halting all Congressional Tom-Foolery for the next couple of weeks.  Congress is always at its best when it is not in session!

Will The UK Brexit?

My previous post on Brexit can be found here. It included a “must see” video on why the United Kingdom must free itself from the bureaucratic tyranny of the European Union. It notes how the EU is run by people who are not elected by anyone. A bureaucracy that is completely isolated from the citizens of Europe, living the pampered rich life away from those who pay the hard earned taxes.

The EU is like a cancer, sucking the economic life out of the majority of hard-working, average people. To see where this is all heading all we have to do is look south – to Venezuela. Back in December, it was clear the country was heading for economic implosion, but the political elites did nothing to avoid mass tragedy:

From the vantage point of the well-kept lawns and overstuffed antique chairs of the exclusive Caracas Country Club, Venezuela doesn’t look so bad.

Much of the oil-rich country is crippled by rising inflation, a lack of basic goods and rampant violence that could lead to the ruling United Socialist party losing control of the legislature for the first time in 17 years in Sunday’s elections. But at this exclusive club, set on the leafy slopes of the El Avila mountain, those troubles seem a world away.

Elegantly bowtied waiters offer club members and their guests an extensive menu, including lobster bisque, lobster ceviche, lobster salad and grilled lobster. Outside the grand mansion clubhouse, a sparkling swimming pool gives way to an 18-hole golf course.

While most of these have been middle-class professionals looking for better economic opportunities, the elites are also choosing to live elsewhere.

“I would say that 99% of the 1% in Venezuela have a second home somewhere else,” the businessman said.

The Nero’s of Venezuela fiddle as their country falls apart around them. Venezuela started on this socialist path early, so they are leading the charge into economic oblivion. How far behind is the EU?

In Europe there are some incredibly successful holdouts from the EU – Switzerland and Norway. They enjoy extremely high living standards. The UK could join them this week and begin to turn Europe away from an economic implosion, driven by a self-absorbed and distant bureaucracy. A path away from the Venezuela model.

I think Brexit reflects our choices in this election year here in America. I think the rise of Donald Trump is just like Brexit, a broad-based feeling that something at the top is seriously rotten, and we need to chart a different course.

Our American Political Elite have been striving to insulate themselves from the unwashed masses for decades, and with the support of the Political Industrial Complex have come very close to ensuring no one from the outside can break into the club and remove their greedy hands from the trove of tax revenues. They would love to be in the EU, where the voters have no redress and no way to upend the bureaucrats’ control.

I believe the UK will vote for Brexit on the 23rd. While the polls look close, the phenomena I have seen in recent years is that those who don’t trust the Political Elite tend to not trust their pollsters (who are part and parcel of the overall Political Industrial Complex). So I see the anti “big government” voters hesitant to respond to pollsters, which tends to over sample the pro “big government” voters.

This shows up in the US as a bias towards the Democrats, who tend to poll better than the vote comes out in the end.  The difference between sampling “adults”, “registered voters” and “likely voters”, which trend more republican has you move from the general populace to the actual voters.

Anyway, my feeling is the United Kingdom has become so anxious with the EU shenanigans that they instinctively understand they need to change course.  And I think the same anxiousness has begun to ripple through the American electorate.

This could be a pivotal year for humankind, where the unwashed masses take back their self-governance from command central.

To understand how critical these votes are to self governance, please watch the entire Brexit video.

Lies of Omission

The Obama administration has reached critical stupidity – the kind that goes from laughable to horribly tragic.

Evil has a name, and that name is violent militant Islam:

Islamic terrorism is, by definition, terrorist acts committed by Muslim groups or individuals who profess Islamic or Islamist motivations or goals. Islamic terrorists justify their violent tactics by selectively citing Quran and Hadith and interpreting these scriptures according to their own goals and intentions.

Over the weekend I was stunned to hear our US Attorney General state – outright – the government was going to censor the record regarding the Orlando Massacre:

The Department of Justice is scrubbing references of radical Islamic beliefs from the transcripts of calls Orlando terrorist Omar Mateen made to police during his massacre, Attorney General Loretta Lynch said Sunday.

Why do this? I mean, at every point the transcript is blacked out anyone with a few IQ points can fill in “something about Islamic Terrorism”. What is it about facing THIS enemy that has Obama and the Political Elites tied up in mental knots?

Say it: “Islamic Terrorism, Islamic Terrorism, Islamic Terrorism, …”

Update: And now we see the Obama Administration’s stupidity up close and ugly:

“Praise be to God, and prayers as well as peace be upon the prophet of God [in Arabic]. I let you know, I’m in Orlando and I did the shootings,” Mateen told a 911 dispatcher during a 50-second phone call at 2:35 a.m., in the midst of the massacre.

“I pledge allegiance to [omitted] may God protect him [in Arabic], on behalf of [omitted],” Mateen told the dispatcher.

Really?  Are they treating us like children who cannot understand the big bad real world??? – end update

Is this really all beyond dumb and heading into dangerous?

You tell me:

Three Syrian refugees reportedly raped a little girl at knifepoint in Idaho before urinating on her body, an incident that prompted furious residents to accuse Twin Falls city council members of covering up the assault.

The perpetrators were three Syrian youths aged 8, 10 and 13, with the oldest boy directing the assault.

I guess the “Elites” are not going to look at the perps’ upbringing, and claim it had nothing to do with their violent actions. We can’t have that! The poor girl probably deserved what these animals did.

When violence is taught at your mosque and in your house, guess what.  You become a violent person.When you are taught females are property, whom you can beat or kill in order for the males to ‘save face’, you become a violent person against females. When it is the law to kill gays and others who have sex “outside marriage” (and they aren’t talking LGBT marriage here folks) you become a person who promotes and enacts violence. If this is the foundation of your belief system – you are dangerous.

How do we go from stopping Christians from saying “Merry Christmas” to this??

I fail to see why the Democrats need to put their heads in the sand on this, but it really baffles me when they demand that everyone follow suite!

My initial reaction to this kind of madness is to kick these people in the butt to wake them up (and open their eyes).

But what we really need to do is get the Democrats out of the White House as fast as possible, and then make sure all the mealy-mouthed congress-critters are put on the sideline (feel free to assume the position modeled above) while the rest of us take action to protect American Citizens – not just illegal immigrants.

These “boys” in Idaho better be on a boat back to where they came from – given what they did to that little girl.

Obama Administration Is Lost & Confused On Terrorism

I wanted to discover the depth of the Obama Administration’s culpability in the Orlando Massacre, because something teed off both Sen McCain and President Obama this week. McCain when he accused Obama for being directly responsible for the events in Orlando, and Obama when he showed his thin skin over Trumps challenge to call the act one of Radical Islamic Terror.

Both got me to thinking, there must be something there for such practiced Pols to lose their cools publicly like that.

But let’s begin with some myth busting and expose Orlando for what it was – an act very much in line with Islam and Sharia law. So says quite a few Imams in Australia:

Imam Yusuf Peer, the chairman of the Council of Imams Queensland, who is a member of the national peak body, told The Weekend Australian yesterday that it was “not permissible” to be gay and Muslim.

When asked if sharia ­required death, Imam Peer said: “Yes.”

Imam Peer said because a “proper process” involving “committees” applied, it prevented the “random bashing and killing” of homosexuals: “Nobody can implement Islam­ic sharia on their own. There is a procedure, there is arbitration, there is a committee.”

So the method Omar Mateen used was wrong, but the result maybe not so much??

Sheik Alsuleiman has previously quoted Islamic law on the punishment for zina — sex outside marriage — in which he asked his followers to “remember” sharia calls for the death of those who commit adultery.

Extremist Islamic group Hizb ut-Tahrir’s spokesman Uthman Badar said on Facebook yesterday that Mr Turnbull was condemning the “normative Islam­ic position on homosex­uality” and criticised fellow Muslims for listening to a lecture on “how they should take liberalism instead of Islam as reference point” in their lives.

OK – so we get the picture. And given how LGBTs have become more and more tolerated by the Great Satan America, it is not a huge leap of logic to see a connection.

So what has the Obama administration done to protect LGBT Americans? The answer is sad. Step 1 was to stop checking people from certain countries as they entered the US (a program not too different from what Trump has discussed at times):

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) announced on April 28 [AJStrata: 2011] that it would terminate the National Security Entry-Exit Registration System (NSEERS) …

Individuals seeking admission to the United States and who were required to participate in the program were subject to a specialized entry process at U.S. ports of entry, including having their fingerprints and photograph taken. Participating visitors were also [sic] be required to “check-in” with immigration officials 30 days after being admitted to the United States and again at the end of one year, in order for immigration officials to verify that they were complying with the terms of their visas.

Additionally, the Department of Justice (DOJ) required certain individuals from the designated countries who were already in the United States to also participate in NSEERS.

Geez, seems reasonable.  The countries on the “Can’t Just Walk In” list were:

Afghanistan, Algeria, Bahrain, Bangladesh, Egypt, Eritrea, Indonesia, Iran, Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Libya, Morocco, North Korea, Oman, Pakistan, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Somalia, Sudan, Syria Tunisia, United Arab Emirates, and Yemen.

So we paid special attention to people from these countries with known radicals bent on destroying western civilization. At least until 2011.

According to DHS, between September 2002 and the end of September 2003 (nearly the full course of the special registration component of the NSEERS program), 83,519 individuals participated in special registration interviews at immigration offices nationwide. As a result of these interviews, 13,799 individuals were placed in removal proceedings.

Emphasis mine.  Can we speculate that this means 13,799 possible deadly attacks were foiled? I mean, to be an individual of such threatening stature to warrant being expelled, I would think so?

Of the remainder of the 83,519 individuals monitored in NSEERS, how many decided not to perform a terrorist act once they realized they were exposed? Would any sleeper cell want them??

But Step 2 was the worse action taken by the Obama Administration. Instead of focusing on people from areas of the world known for their hatred of all things American, Obama’s DHS was out training law enforcement to watch Evangelicals, Mormons, Jews and Christians.

Yes, you read that right. In fact, Evangelicals were at the top of the threat list (now we know why we don’t want to use secret lists to curb constitutional rights).

Written on Monday, April 8, 2013

Todd Starnes, writing for Fox News, reports that during a U.S. Army training event, an Army instructor cited Evangelical Christianity and Catholicism as examples of religious extremism—along with Al Qaeda and Hamas.

Not only was it implied that Evangelical Christianity is as dangerous as a terrorist organization, but it was at the top of the list of threats. And, here is that list:
Evangelical Christianity
Muslim Brotherhood
Ultra-Orthodox Jews
Christian Identity
Al Qaeda
Hamas
Abu Sayyam
Ku Klux Klan
Sri Ram Sene
Catholicism
Kamane Movement / Kach
Army of God
Sunni Muslims
Nation of Islam
Jewish Defense League
Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints
Hutaree

Islamophobia” was also listed as a form of religious extremism.

“We find this offensive to have Evangelical Christians and the Catholic Church to be listed among known terrorist groups,” Ron Crews, executive director of the Chaplain Alliance for Religious Liberty, said. “It is dishonorable for any U.S. military entity to allow this type of wrongheaded characterization.”

Red emphasis mine, black emphasis from original. Talk about confused! I do not recall Evangelicals, Jews, Mormons, Catholics or Christians killing mass numbers of people in the name of god since 9/11

At least not American ones. The cause of Team Obama’s confusion seems to be a bigotry towards religion in general:

“There was a pervasive attitude in the presentation that anything associated with religion is an extremist.”

A report issued by the Department of Justice in 2011 relating to “National Security Division Statistics on Unsealed International Terrorism and Terrorism – Related Convictions 9/11/01 – 3/ 18/10? identified, after analysis, more than 80% of all such convictions tied to international terrorist groups and homegrown terrorism involved defendants driven by a radical Islamist agenda.

Wow.  No wonder Obama is angry at being called out and McCain accused him of creating the mother of all FUBARs. He really is going to avoid facing Islamic threats at any cost, isn’t he? Maybe Obama does need the qualifier “Islamic” so he can distinguish an Evangelical from an Islamists.

The left completely exposed America to violence and death under Team Obama, and Hillary wants more of the same, but faster!

Just Wow.

Terrorism Is No Excuse To Tear Up Our Constitution

I am very disturbed by the train of thought percolating through the Political Industrial Complex the last day or two.

[Political Industrial Complex = Career politicians, their career staff, the sea of political consultants, the crony donors and their lobbyists, the career lead bureaucrats, and of course the pliant “news” media. Basically, the political insiders who like to believe they are “elite”]

The reaction to the Orlando Radical Islamic Terror massacre has emphasized how misguided and distracted the Political Industrial Complex is.  It has emphasized how distant and unconnected from reality these people have become in their limos and gated communities. It has emphasized why they need to be fired.

Apparently, due to the Orlando massacre, it is time to suspend our constitutional rights!

Imagine if the federal government suspended your right to your faith, your right to assemble and your right to speak your mind based on your inclusion on a secret list of American citizens with no prior due process and no open explanation of how you got on that list or how you can get off of it.

Absurd, right? So, why is it absurd to apply that scenario to your 1st amendment rights, but it’s “common sense” when it comes to your 2nd amendment rights?

I listened to Larry O’Connor – author of this great piece – debate his “conservative” side kick on WMAL Radio. It was disgusting.  His side kick asked the dumb question “if they cannot fly, why can they buy a gun?”

Because [insert your favorite insult to intellect here] flying is not a constitutional right! But even worse – this idea WOULD NOT have stopped the Orlando massacre. So why even tie this dumb idea to an event if it wouldn’t solve the risk??

Why? Because the PIC does not care about the victims, it cares about its agenda, its power base, its echo chambers.

O’Connor points out this is all a shell game, because the “no fly” list is not what Congress is proposing,  it is a falsehood for the “too dumb” masses:

But the aide said Feinstein has sometimes referred to the no-fly database rather than the broader one her legislation actually covers for this reason: “That’s more relatable to the average person — people have heard of the no-fly list, not necessarily [ones like] the National Counterterrorism Center’s TIDE database.

… clearly, the Democrats aren’t looking to actually get anything done. They are looking for a fund-raising issue and a divisive wedge issue to polarize Republicans and those of us who crave our liberty over pretty much everything else.

The larger secret list contains around a millions names. But even if it contained 10 names, trading our rights away is not the answer.

Omar Mateen was on the FBI’s radar.  They were even informed of his attempts to buy bullets and body armor:

Abell said that Mateen asked for level 3 body armor, but the store doesn’t sell it. He also said Mateen made a phone call and spoke Arabic before asking for bulk ammunition.

The employees did not sell him any ammunition and Abell stated that “we contacted FBI direct” after Mateen left the store, but they were “not as attentive as we would have hoped.”

So even when notified, the FBI (and the administration overall) seems to be very hesitant to pursue  threats when the threat is from a Muslim. Hesitant to the point of paralyzed it seems.  Which is not a surprise, since the administration bans the words that best describe Radical Islamic Terrorism. Hell, they even want to ban the phrase “Illegal Alien”!

Here are my proposals:

  • The “no-fly” list and other well maintained lists should be tied to all gun background checks – if they aren’t already.
  • The gun sale cannot be stopped in some cases where the persons rights are still intact, but it can be suspended briefly. During the suspension law enforcement then contacts the individual and explains clearly to them they are deemed a threat. This could divert some from a rash act, but probably not someone like Omar Mateen. At a minimum though, this interview would allow law enforcement to decide whether to implement constant surveillance in case the person is not to be diverted. If Mateen had been under surveillance, then the attack in Orlando might have been stopped before it started. Yeah, this is more work – but many have died for our Constitution so buck up.
  • It should also be illegal for any non-citizen to purchase any gun until they have been in the US 12 months and they have legal documents. This is just common sense. If caught with a gun illegally they are immediately deported. This would basically put a ban on gun purchases to all those who have crossed our borders in the last year under Obama’s foolish actions.

These three basic things could make a huge difference. Much more of a difference than banning gun sales to people who have not yet been proven guilty of any crimes.

We should not let terrorists or deluded political “elites” rip up our constitution, and we must think of ways to make another Orlando massacre very difficult to pull off. In my humble opinion these steps would do that.

Update: Idea number 4 – allow clubs to hire people with military or police experience (and I would restrict this to only former military and police given their training) to be armed security for large clubs, etc.  A lone wolf will not take on an armed fortress.

Update 2: More details on the gun store that informed the FBI of Mateen’s interest in body armor – and a possible co-conspirator (or more likely handler)

You heard right. When denied the purchase of body armor, “Lone Wolf” Omar Mateen got on the phone, had a conversation in a foreign language and then started asking about purchasing large quantities of ammunition.

He had a handler for sure. When the body armor was not available he asked for guidance on what to do.  He was directed to ask for “bulk ammo”.

Obama Administration Erased Terrorist “Dots”

Most people probably believe that to perform national security against terrorist attacks on US soil, it would entail some form of “connecting the dots”. Another way of saying this is: one would need to pull together independent pieces of information to build a picture that could be a warning of a threat that could be acted upon to save lives.

But first you have to have the dots that make up the picture of the threat. Finding the right dots to identify a threat is hard enough.  It is like looking for a light gray dot in a sea of slightly gray dots. And the the picture takes time to put together, so the dots don’t connect all at once but over time.

You would think that.

But the Obama administration tends to fly in the face of common sense, and it spent a lot of its energy erasing dots before they could be connected. From Feb of this year:

Amid the chaos of the 2009 holiday travel season, jihadists planned to slaughter 290 innocent travelers on a Christmas Day flight from the Netherlands to Detroit, Michigan. Twenty-three-year old Nigerian Muslim Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab intended to detonate Northwest Airlines Flight 253, but the explosives in his underwear malfunctioned and brave passengers subdued him until he could be arrested. The graphic and traumatic defeat they planned for the United States failed, that time.

Following the attempted attack, President Obama threw the intelligence community under the bus for its failure to “connect the dots.” He said, “this was not a failure to collect intelligence, it was a failure to integrate and understand the intelligence that we already had.”

President Obama is a slick deflector of responsibility, because at the time he was saying this his orders to erase “the dots” was being carried out:

Just before that Christmas Day attack, in early November 2009, I was ordered by my superiors at the Department of Homeland Security to delete or modify several hundred records of individuals tied to designated Islamist terror groups like Hamas from the important federal database, the Treasury Enforcement Communications System (TECS). These types of records are the basis for any ability to “connect dots.”  Every day, DHS Customs and Border Protection officers watch entering and exiting many individuals associated with known terrorist affiliations, then look for patterns. Enforcing a political scrubbing of records of Muslims greatly affected our ability to do that. Even worse, going forward, my colleagues and I were prohibited from entering pertinent information into the database.

Emphasis mine.

Now apparently this was all done based on the individual’s religion!

So let me get this straight. Donald Trump’s proposal to temporarily block immigration from certain hotbeds of Radical Islam (which is no different from banning immigration of Radical Koreans – from North Korea) is unethical and biased.

But Obama’s order to delete terror threat data based on religion is not biased?

Only in DC could this sound sane! Only in America would the news media be so clueless. Of course, a modern news media career relies on access to people in power. So the people in power ensure the media is clueless – or buys their “dots” only from official channels so as ensure the brain-washed masses don’t connect dots on their own.

On a separate note: How about we ban gun sales to Muslims – wouldn’t that make a few liberal heads implode? How could Hillary talk herself out of that logic-bomb?

Hillary’s State Department Might Have Avoided Pulse Killings

Published by under All General Discussions

What if?

That is a really dangerous – and many times pointless – question. The answers can range from disturbing to silly.

What if Hitler had been assassinated in the July 1944 attempt on his life at his Wolf’s Lair? How many people would have lived instead of dying in the bloody invasion of Fortress Europe?

What if President Lincoln’s assassin had missed and Lincoln had never died?

What if the Titanic had missed that lone iceberg?

What if Bill Clinton was a good and faithful husband?

It is a question that sometimes needs to be asked. And this seems to be one of those times.

What if Hillary Clinton and her State Department HAD NOT blocked a Homeland Security inquiry into Omar Mateen’s mosque, and instead had disrupted the flow of events leading to the bloody massacre at the Pulse?

Hillary Clinton’s State Dept. shut down an investigation into the mosque Orlando killer Omar Mir Siddique Mateen attended because it “unfairly singled out Muslims.”

The Fort Pierce Islamic Center, where Mateen worshipped several times a week, was under investigation by both the FBI and DHS as early as 2011 for ties to a worldwide Islamic movement known as Tablighi Jamaal which was linked to several terrorist organizations.

But the investigation was shut down under pressure from the Clinton-ran State Dept. and DHS’s Civil Rights and Civil Liberties Office out of fear of offending Muslims, according to recently retired DHS agent Philip Haney.

Un – be – lievable. [emphasis in original]

Let me get this straight. We may offend some Muslims, so we instead clear a path for a national disaster to take place? An epic bloodbath of innocent people out for a night of fun? This is leadership?

Is this Beirut? Is this Jerusalem? Is this Afghanistan?

When the police pull over a drunk driver, should they be worried that they may “offend” the driver? Or should they protect all the other innocent people on our public roads?

How is this even a question? Who was so Politically Correct they locked down all their IQ points to come up with this nonsense?

The world of Obama/Clinton has now brutally exposed itself to America. But don’t expect the dullards in the Political Industrial Complex to wake up and smell the carnage.  The real world is some theoretical, other-dimension to the political elites.

    synonyms: talk nonsense, talk rubbish, babble, ramble, gibber, blather, prattle, gabble, waffle

    “you always drivel on

President Obama has just demonstrated what a confused and unprepared leader he remains – even after 7 years trying to lead this great nation. You have to be completely out to lunch to make a statement like this after the worse massacre of innocent life in US history:

So determined is the president to avoid the subject of Islamist, ISIS-inspired or ISIS-directed terrorism that he concluded his remarks with an astonishing insistence that “we need the strength and courage to change” our attitudes toward the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender community.

That’s just disgusting. There’s no other word for it.

America’s national attitude toward LGBT people didn’t shoot up the Pulse nightclub.

If Obama wanted to strengthen Donald Trump’s anti-terrorist platform and sink former Secretary of State Clinton’s chance at election – he sure did it today. He has riddled this country with undocumented illegal aliens, any one of which could coordinate other attacks with people like Omar Mateen (an anchor baby – which is another perk this nation needs to roll back). We have lost control of our borders and now we sit and wait to see who is and is not going to kill us.

Brilliant.

The only way to “change” America’s current path towards gays, lesbians, etc would be to reverse gears 180 degrees and embrace Islamic law, followed by state-sponsored progroms to eradicate the individuals who are insulting Islamo Fascists. Is that what Obama means?

Or is this more of “blame the victim”?? Who knows what this latest drivel was meant to convey – outside his legendary incompetence.

Update: Before Obama’s drivel even hit the floor is nuanced stance just got completely upended:

Orlando Jihadist Omar Matten was radicalized by New Back Panther Party Member, Marcus Dwayne Robertson (below left), who is a known advocate of radical Islam in Florida and was formerly famous for being a bodyguard for the Blind Sheik.

The gunman who murdered at least 50 people in a Florida nightclub early Sunday morning was a follower of a controversial gang leader-turned-bank robber who was released from prison last year despite warnings from prosecutors that he would recruit people to carry out violent acts, sources told FoxNews.com.

More here:

US District Judge Greg Presnell, a Clinton appointee, ignored warnings from the government lawyers that Robertson was incredibly good at recruiting other people to do things and carry out acts that he didn’t participate in.

Sunday morning in Orlando probably was one of those.

Double whammy.  Can’t wait to see Obama/Clinton try and explain this away.

Trump Increases(??) Hispanic Support

Update: Some good observations from Sean Trende, with AllahPundit lamenting stubborn Trump voters end update

What if America’s Political Industrial Complex (PIC) was so isolated, so insulated, so distant from  “everyday America” that they had no clue how misguided and off track they are? What if the bubble that surrounds them and blocks their view of Main Street has become so dense that the denizens of the PIC are completely blind to what is happening outside their bubble?

If this was the case, and a broad voter backlash was rising up in the populace representing the right-to-center swath of America, you would see reports like this:

It is evident that Donald Trump has rewritten the rules of political campaigning, leaving the so- called experts, analysts, journalists and even the GOP itself puzzled by the power and effectiveness of his approach.

Latino advocacy groups and some celebrities have launched powerful videos, protests and campaigns against Trump. Recognized conservative voices like Marco Rubio, Susana Martinez, the Bush family, and even Pope Francis himself have made their discontent clear with the candidate, but could it be possible he is actually gaining support among Hispanics?

Well, before we get to the juicy stuff lets recall why there is an impression Trump is being rejected by America’s Hispanics.  This theory is all based on political theater and something called “astroturfing”:

In political science, it is defined as the process of seeking electoral victory or legislative relief for grievances by helping political actors find and mobilize a sympathetic public, and is designed to create the image of public consensus where there is none.[1][2] Astroturfing is the use of fake grassroots efforts that primarily focus on influencing public opinion and typically are funded by corporations and governmental entities to form opinions.

Emphasis mine.  By definition the political act of astroturing is to create a false impression in the public’s (or PIC’s) mind. From the theory of astroturfing, we go to the facts of astroturfing:

False flag operations have long been common in politics, but these riots are poisonous to the electorate, intentionally designed to turn violent and stifle free speech.

This free speech-busting goon squad operation is directed by supporters of Hillary Clinton. It is paid for mostly by George Soros and MoveOn.org and pushed by David Brock at Media Matters for America.

A march and demonstration against Trump at Trump Tower essentially fizzled Saturday when only 500 “protesters” of the promised 5000 showed up. Infiltrating the crowd, I learned most were from MoveOn or the Occupy movement. Soap was definitely in short supply in this crowd. Several admitted answering a Craig’s list ad paying $16.00 an hour for protesters.

OK, with the full context of what has been going on this primary season, let’s get back to reality and whether Trump is really hemorrhaging Hispanic support:

Clearly, conventional political research is in question, but what if big data analysis reveals Trump’s rise is real, based on a sample size of over 1 million Hispanics?

Based on big data analysis over the last 30 days as of June 1st, Trump reports 37 percent of Hispanic positive sentiment versus 41 percent for Clinton.

Woah!

Hold up here! Trump is basically tied with Clinton on Hispanic support?

The hilarity of all this is that what we probably have here is the boomerang effect. The Political Industrial Complex astroturfing  Trump with regards to Hispanics has fooled themselves into this mindset!

I mean, if the PIC (which encompasses all the career politicians, their handlers and consultants, their crony donors and lobbyists, and the ever pliant “news”media) want to pretend Donald Trump is not going to do well with Hispanics – fine with me!

They can delude themselves all they want. It will be all the more sweet when Trump wins come November and they realize the PIC is going to get a major overhaul – thanks to some very frustrated and fed up voters.
