Leftist Memes

Social Media is full of memes from the Left that just prove the stupidity and ignorance of their half baked ideas. So lets dive into this one.

I don’t want my taxes to pay for your healthcare. You pay for your health issues and I pay for mine. And also if the country goes to war. Your taxes are going to help pay for it. No matter how you may feel about it. Everything the government does is paid for by taxation. You don’t have a choice in that.

Everyone wants the opportunity for a good paying job. The question is what are you willing to do to earn one. Good paying jobs aren’t just handed to everyone. You have to have skills that are in demand. This takes some form of education. Be it college, apprenticeships, or trade skills. Even skilled manual labor can pay well. If you don’t have these skills or any skills at all you wont get a good paying job.

Everyone’s vote does count. Use your voting rights to make your voice heard. Don’t stay home for any reason unless you don’t care what the outcome is of a particular vote. Local elections are exteremely important. Know the issues and candidates. Locally and nationally. Become one yourself if you don’t like how things are going. Remember that we live in a Representative Federal Constitutional Repubic. Notice there is no “democracy” in that description. Nor does the word exisit in the US Constitution or in any State constitution. We are not a democracy.

Elected representatives represent all of the people of their particular area. Be it a city, a county, a precinct, a state, or the nation as a whole. Within those people are business owners both large and small. They have the right to fight for not only their individual issues but also for the issues that face their business. This includes regulations and other statutes. To deny them that right is to deny them representation. Regulations and statutes that impact businesses can be devistating to the bottom line of a business. It could mean the difference to being out of business or providing good paying jobs to the community.

Everyone should pay their fair share. This is the cry of the financially uneducated. But there is a lesson here that needs to be exposed. The current Income Tax code is the product of Marxist Socialism and does not ever level the playing field no matter how high or low the percentage of taxes that are paid. It will eventually become so high that the producers will remove themselves completely from the country. This has already happened in several European countries that have practiced this Socialist tax plan.

What is needed here is the abolishment of the income tax and the implementation of the Fair Tax. This puts more money in the pockets of the people where it belongs. And then everyone pays their fair share with a national sales tax. The rich buy expensive items and pay a higher tax than the middle class and even the poorest of Americans.

Leftist Lexicon Word of the Week

I hate to admit it, but Congresswoman-Elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is starting to grow on me. For someone who follows politics so you don’t have to and tries to pepper his commentary with humor, Ms. Ocasio-Cortez is comedy gold!

Among the various ideas she’s tossed around is something called a Green New Deal, and it’s gaining traction among the greener members of the Left. And, like many of the ideas she’s tossed about, it has far-reaching implications…and is poorly thought out and, thus, mockable. So, let’s do that, shall we?

Green New Deal

What the Left thinks it means – a series of initiatives to address ecological and economic crises with the focus on climate change

What it really means – another attempt to grab green while attempting to go green

If the Left ever started a religion (aside from worshiping failed sociopolitical movements and, oh yeah, themselves), it might look a little like the green movement. No matter what happens, it’s attributable to climate change. And don’t you dare bring stuff like real science and facts into the discussion because that just won’t do. We have to believe climate change is real, is getting worse, and only we can stop it.

Come to think of it, that’s pretty much Leftists worshiping themselves. Anyway…

The Green New Deal has a lot of Leftist gated-community-cul-du-sac cred. First off, it’s based in part on Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s New Deal, a series of government programs designed to lift our failing economy during the Great Depression. Second, it combines two of the Left’s favorite causes: the environment, and spending other people’s money. And third, it’s guaranteed to increase the size and scope of government. So, to the Left, it’s a win-win-win proposition!

Now, are you expecting me to pour a glacier’s worth of cold water on this idea? If you said yes, I hope you bet the over because there is a lot wrong with the Green New Deal.

First off, the New Deal wasn’t that great overall. In fairness, it did cut into the unemployment rate a bit, so I will give it credit for that. The problem is it didn’t solve the employment or economic problems nearly as much as we’ve been lead to think it did. When you look at the numbers (and I have since my social calendar is emptier than a strip club in Amish country), the New Deal moved unemployment less than a percent after several years of being introduced. Prices were still high for the time and jobs were mostly scarce, even with the New Deal’s make-work programs.

So, if it wasn’t the New Deal that got us out of the Great Depression, what did? A little thing the kids like to call World War II. After Pearl Harbor, our factories needed to produce goods for the war, which meant a need for people to work, and that meant more jobs to be had. FDR might get the credit from Leftists (and he does), but his programs didn’t accomplish what they set out to do in any significant way. Hopefully, there isn’t a world war that comes after the Green New Deal is put in place, but it might be the only way for it to succeed.

I’ve talked at length about the Left’s green hypocrisy, so I won’t go too much into it here. And if you’ve paid attention to federal budgeting in the past few decades, you know all about how the Left loves to spend other people’s money. I will say, however, many people who push a green agenda also have another ideology behind it: some variation of socialism. That’s not to say all of them are, but after seeing enough of them, I’m starting to think it’s a requirement, not an aberration.

Then, there’s the growth of government. Leftists love this idea because it guarantees jobs for people who wouldn’t otherwise be employed and protects them from being fired for the reasons these people wouldn’t otherwise be employed. I don’t know all of the specifics (because not even the Green New Deal supporters have thought it out yet), but I guarantee there will be overlap with existing government programs. How can I make such a bold prediction? Because there already is overlap, and a lot of it. Take the banking industry, for example. You can count on 2 hands the number of agencies that oversee different banking functions and might even need to take off your shoes and socks these days. And they are all doing the same thing. A Green New Deal will only repeat that process, and it won’t get us any cleaner. Just look at SuperFund.

While going green is an admirable goal, the Left simply can’t make it work without coming up with expensive “fixes” that don’t do anything or creating yet another government agency that will spend more on air travel to climate change conferences than on the actual problem of climate change. But before you think I’m just complaining without an alternative, let me roll out my Green New Deal.

Approach Elon Musk, offer him a sum of money upon completion to solve or at least mitigate the climate change problem, and let him go to work.

That idea will make Leftists’ heads explode, but hear me out. The problem with the green movement is that it doesn’t understand what Musk does: environmentalism isn’t sexy. If you want people to become more environmentally friendly today, you have to create a demand for it. Toyota tried doing this with the Prius, and it’s still limping along while others drive by in SUVs so high you need an air traffic controller whenever you go out for a drive. And a big part of that is the Prius looks like an egg. It’s not attractive, but it does fulfill human need, such as being part of a group and having that group think highly of the Prius owner. But ego alone isn’t enough to save the planet. What’s missing is capitalism.

Musk didn’t become rich and famous by settling for the mediocre. He dreamed big, risked big, and won big with the Tesla and with Space-X. We need that kind of daredevil intellect involved in what the Left considers to be the highest stakes of all with climate change, but the Left doesn’t want a solution; they want a problem they can milk for money, power, and occasional guest spots on CNN and MSNBC.

The fate of the Green New Deal is up in the air right now, but if the past is prologue, we know how the story ends before it even begins. Let’s try something new, a more daring approach.

Do it…for the children.

Leftist Lexicon Word of the Week

Once again, the eyes of Americans are drawn to our southern border as hundreds of people are heading there to try to enter our country. These potential immigrants are currently moving from Central America through Mexico, fleeing their homelands and requesting asylum.

At least, that’s what we’ve been told. The truth, as they say, it much more complicated.

Since both the Left and the Right have mischaracterized the migrant caravan, I can’t let either side slide on this. So, consider this a Bipartisan Lexicon Word of the Week.

migrant caravan

What the Left thinks it means – poor souls who deserve to be let into our country to start better lives

What the Right things it means – poor people who are trying to invade America and take jobs from us

What it really means – poor souls being used as political pawns or trying to use our immigration system to their benefit

Let’s deal with a few facts here. First, the people currently traveling through Mexico are trying to escape conditions that make “Mad Max: Thunder Road” look like “Heidi.” This is not a healthy environment for cockroaches, let alone human beings. Let me put it this way. If moving to Mexico is an upgrade, your home country sucks. End of story.

Second, Mexico has extended asylum to the caravan, and the members have refused it. On top of that, some have been complaining about the charity they’ve gotten from the Mexican people, saying it wasn’t new or good enough for them. It’s gotten to the point even Mexicans are tired of the migrant caravan. One poll I read showed they had a 49% disapproval rating among Mexicans polled. If it goes any hire, Donald Trump might let them in so he can look good by comparison.

Third, not every person in the caravan wants asylum in the traditional sense. The normal process for asylum or amnesty is through official channels, such as an embassy, consulate, or at the border itself, and it must be crystal clear at the time those seeking it arrive at the aforementioned locations. If you rush the border, get knocked back, and then ask for asylum, that’s not the way to do it. However, that’s the way at least some members of the caravan (and their Leftist supporters) want it to happen, and it makes a mockery of the existing process in place that millions of legal immigrants have used to come here. If getting asylum is as easy as throwing rocks at Border Patrol agents, you’re pretty much negating the need for borders. Which, by the way, is an idea in Leftist circles that has gained traction thanks to influence (and tons of money) from your pal and mine, Uncle George Soros.

Fourth, the media aren’t telling us the truth. Yeah, like that’s a shocker! The photos we see are often of women and children crying or otherwise being subjected to what we’re told is horrible conditions under the direction of that mean ole evil super-racist Donald Trump. I mean, he ordered the Border Patrol to shoot tear gas at those poor innocent migrants! That’s practically chemical warfare! And it’s exactly what the previous President, Barack Obama, did at least once a week on average since 2013. Furthermore, the majority of the people in the caravan aren’t women and children. They are…adult men. Hmmm…I seem to remember another group the media told us were totally peaceful women and children and turned out to be mostly men prone to violence. I wish I could remember who they were. Oh well, I’m sure they haven’t caused any trouble since migrating to various countries…

When it comes down to it, neither the Left nor the Right have taken the right approach to the migrant caravan. They aren’t all innocent, as evidenced by members of the caravan throwing rocks at Border Patrol agents, but they’re not all invaders. From what I’ve seen, unless the caravan has heavy artillery coming behind them, they aren’t in a position to invade an open bar, let alone America. We need to take the time to separate the good from the bad and make sure those who are legitimately seeking asylum here are given a chance to get it.

Here is my step-by-step guide to making that happen.

1) If they want asylum, they have to say it from the get-go. No ambiguity, no throw rocks, get knocked back by tear gas, and then say you want asylum. Call it the Speak Now or Forever Hold Your Peace approach.

2) For those who get past step 1, make sure to have all necessary personnel and logistics in place to process their requests quickly, yet thoroughly. If the asylum seeker’s story checks out, get them in here and under the care of those who will handle the next steps. If the story doesn’t check out, politely decline their request, give them a care package of some sort with food, water, and other supplies, and send them back. And no double-dipping!

3) Respond in kind where appropriate. Yes, I know rocks can be deadly, but for the most part they are non-lethal weapons. Tear gas is a bit much. Try something closer to bean bags or rubber bullets, stuff that won’t cause permanent damage but will be a reminder to behave around the Border Patrol.

4) Stand firm. Leftists are going to make hay out of this issue no matter what happens, so there is a temptation to give in a little bit to keep the heat off. The problem is if you give a Leftist an inch, they will take a light year and complain about it being too short. As long as the position taken can be defended from a policy, logical, and ethical standpoint, stick with it. And, if you want to throw in an extra twist, ask the Leftists to come up with a better plan. They’ll scatter faster than high schoolers at a keg raid.

These are simple short term steps that will hopefully become long term solutions, but they are needed more than ever. The migrant caravan now may turn into a wave of immigrants later, which is exactly what the Left wants because it satisfies two of their main goals: overwhelming the current system to the point it collapses, and a constant stream of voters for Leftist policies. The best way to curtail that is to figure out how to address the problem and stick with it. But until we come up with a solution, let’s not pretend the caravan is squeaky clean or black-hearted until we get more facts. A great man once said, “Trust, but verify.”

And that man…was my Uncle Steve. And now you know the rest of the story. Good day!

The Great Divide

Politics in the United States is deeply divided. Some blame the educational system. Civics is no longer taught in our schools. Some blame political correctness. You can’t say certain things without offending someone, and you can’t offend anyone. Others still just think that people have become too thin skinned and are easily offended.

All of these things are true along with others that haven’t been mentioned. But all of them are symptoms not the disease that has caused this great divide in American politics.

The reason the the United States has such a deep divide is due to the Leftist takeover of the Democratic Party, our public schools at every level from our local schools to our colleges and universities, even the entire teaching profession only teaches Leftist ideology, and even the Church is being taken over by these Leftists.

Leftists have always used the “divide and conquer” strategy when taking over a nation. They use this because it works of course. Create a victim and an oppressor and you can create an environment rich for control over the victim classes. Leftists pretend to be champions of these marginalized victims, but the Left only uses them as “useful idiots” and the tools to destroy the current liberty and replace it with Leftist elitism and total government control.

Once in total power the Left will forget all the promises they made to the victims they created. And even actively oppress and suppress those that brought them into power. This has been the case in every example of Leftist policies that have been put into place anywhere across the globe throughout all of history. Not a single Leftist controlled oligarchy has bettered the host nation that it has consumed.

This is why we have the divide. Leftist ideology in direct conflict with American Exceptionalism has produced this state after decades of running unchecked. And there are only 3 possible real outcomes.

We continue on the present course where the Republic will eventually die. Replaced, perhaps for a time with a Democracy, before becoming a Socialist oligarchy. Where the Leftist elite rule and everyone else is in poverty.

We stop the madness and slowly take our country back over the next couple of generations with hard work and the election of true statesmen. With each elected official being stronger and better educated in the Liberties and Freedom of our Founding Fathers than the one previously elected. This is the most difficult task and the proper method of preserving American Exceptionalism and the Republic. This option is also not likely to occur either.

The 3rd option is armed conflict. A second civil war between the Stateist Left and those representing Freedom and Liberty. Although this could happen sooner it could also not happen for generations yet to come.

As time continues its march. The first option is the most likely of the outcomes. Sad but true given on how few patriots there are and how much most don’t want to be engaged in the political process. And if that does come to pass, then the third option would eventually take place at some point further down the road as the truth is passed on to future generations.

First Amendment Rights – Freedom of the Press

The First Amendment of the US Constitution protects the press from laws that would take away the rights to publish their content. That is the essence of the freedom of the press clause in the Constitution. Even with that guarantee there are many restrictions on the press.

The press cannot publish false information that damages a person’s reputation or livelihood. This is libel, and it is a criminal offense. The press is not guaranteed or granted unrestricted access to, nor can they publish material that is classified or against the national interests of the United States. These laws are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the restrictions on the press.

Being part of the press corps at the White House is not protected by the First Amendment. This is a privilege to the journalists and news agencies who have been granted this access to the President and the Administration. Those individuals and news agencies can have that access revoked. Especially if they violate protocol or the law.

Jim Acosta, the CNN journalist, has violated protocol at the very least. He also has allegedly committed assault against a female White House intern. For these reasons his press pass was revoked by the White House.

But of course some Leftist black-robed unelected tyrant Judge has overstepped their Constitutional authority and reinstated Mr Acosta’s White House press credentials. And until we take back our Liberties this judicial opinion is treated as law. However, the White House is still within it’s authority and bounds to refuse to call upon Mr Acosta and may deactivate any mic he happens to force out of any one else’s hands.

The American People need to understand their rights. They must know them. They must know that they do not come from the government but the come from God. Government is only there to acknowledge these rights and protect these rights.

Mr Acosta’s rights were not violated when his press pass was revoked. This is a privilege not a right to be at the White House press briefing. His freedom of the press was not removed. His right to due process does not apply as this is an administrative action to a privilege. His rights were maintained.

Leftist Lexicon Word of the Week

Welcome back, my friends, to the blog series that never ends…

I hope you all have a happy Thanksgiving, especially if you had to spend it with Left-leaning relatives. I know they mean well, but hearing diatribes on the current rise white nationalism in America over Grandma’s stuffing is enough to ruin just about anyone’s appetites.

The Left has figured out a way to turn a holiday meant to celebrate the good things in our lives and turn it into a Whine-A-Palooza where everything is problematic, political and ideological stands must be taken, and the worst possible thing you can do is spend time with family who might have different beliefs than you do. It’s almost as if they can’t count their blessings because they don’t see them (while simultaneously being able to see white privilege everywhere even when it doesn’t exist). Why does the Left hate Thanksgiving so much? I’m glad you asked!

Thanksgiving

What the Left thinks it means – a racist holiday based on the subjugation and near extinction of Native Americans at the hands of white people

What it really means – a holiday based at least in part on the fact socialism sucks

We’re going to go into a bit of history here, kids, so make sure you have a beverage and some truck stop speed for this one. After the Pilgrims landed on Plymouth Rock (and exchanged insurance information afterwards), they had an idea. They decided to share everything they had and produced on their own. This idea was codified in the Mayflower Compact, and it worked great for a while. Then, winter came, along with numerous illnesses, and the Pilgrims had to make a choice: continue to live in abject starvation and limp through, or change their approach. Considering we still have stories about Pilgrims today, I think we can safely assume they chose the latter.

The Thanksgiving tradition came about after that rough first year and was meant to commemorate their survival and to acknowledge the divine providence that helped them survive and keep the peace with Native American tribes. Not to mention the Dallas Cowboys played the Green Bay Packers that year, so a good time was had by all.

Since that time, whites and Native Americans haven’t always been the best of friends, due in part to bad treaties, worse diplomacy, and the wholesale slaughter of people on both sides of that divide. These events are a part of our history and should be acknowledged. Having said that, Thanksgiving just isn’t the time to bring up that sort of history, mainly and especially because the Pilgrims had nothing really to do with what their descendants did generations later.

So, why do Leftists bring up the entire sorted history at Thanksgiving? Grievance politics and white-knighting, to put it simply.

The first is easy to understand when you think like a Leftist (not that I recommend it, mind you). A Leftist is in a constant state of outrage, depression, and general bad spirits because they see the world as unfair due to powers well beyond their control. So, when they see something that causes offense, they feel they have to speak up about it, whether it be through marching and wearing ridiculous hats that look like female genitalia or screaming at the tops of their lungs or destroying public and private property because reasons. To them, the fact they’re upset overrules any and all other perspectives. In other words, Leftists act like toddlers.

As for the white-knighting, that stems from the aforementioned grievance politics and gets mixed with a major superiority/savior complex to create the idea only Leftists can speak for Native Americans. And, by extension, they are the only ones who can take offense on behalf of Native Americans. Remember the controversy surrounding the Washington Redskins a few years ago? Guess who were primarily the ones taking offense. That’s right: white Leftists. Sure, there were some Native Americans who parroted the Left’s talking points, but they were outnumbered by whites trying to “help” them. Hmmm…isn’t that what got Native Americans and whites to hate each other in the first place?

With the current political environment, we may not be able to stop people from putting white people on trial every Thanksgiving, but we can do a few things to lessen the stress these folks bring to the holiday. First, make sure you know the facts. Leftist arguments work primarily on emotional reactions, so if you stick to the facts, you won’t be persuaded. Second, decide on how you want to respond. If your family enjoys healthy discussion over cranberries, don’t be afraid to speak up. If not, let the Leftist in the family speak his or her mind and look like the asshole. Finally, stick to your plan, no matter what. Leftists will try to rattle you so you’ll engage and make mistakes because you let your feelings run away with you. The easiest way to counter that is…just ignore them. Leftists hate when they’re ignored almost as much as they hate being mocked. By refusing to fall for their bait, you deny them your emotional response to their emotional tirades and you ultimately win by not playing their game at all.

In the meantime, enjoy your leftovers!

Acosta – Enemy of Women

CNN “journalist” Jim Acosta clearly assaulted a young woman intern at the White House just before he lost his press pass. He didn’t loose that pass because of his Leftist views and hatred of our President. He lost it because he assaulted a woman and deserved to loose it.

Now we see the true colors of the Left. They claim that they are the ones that want to protect women from evil men who would do them harm. But in truth that is not what they want. If it was they would be up in arms about the assault on the young intern at the White House. But because she works for President Trump and it was a Leftist that did the assault. They turn a blind eye and scream things about how the President is assaulting the 1st Amendment right of a free press.

The of course is something I will write about later. But the point here in this article is to speak the truth of Jim Acosta’s assault. He needs to be barred from not only the White House by anywhere young women are present. He needs assault charges leveled at him from the intern and backed by the full power of the White House where she was employed as an intern.

This assault on women and culture of rape needs to come to an end. Especially because most of those who are guilty have been proven to be Leftists and Democratic party members. The very ones who state they are out to protect women. Liars all of them.

Leftist Lexicon Word of the Week

When I was growing up, there were very few journalists and reporters who became well-known, and most of the ones I knew tended to be local. With the advent of cable news, the Internet, and social media, that has changed. People may not be able to name the three branches of government, but they might be able to name at least one journalist, and that one would probably be Jim Acosta.

Jim Acosta is CNN’s White House correspondent, and he has made a name for himself by being the proverbial thorn in President Donald Trump’s side. Lately, he has been embroiled in a controversy following a press conference where it appears he touched a female staffer doing possibly the most dangerous job in America: getting a microphone from Jim Acosta. Because of this, Acosta’s press pass was revoked, leading to CNN suing the President and others on the basis the White House violated the First Amendment right to a free press.

Why has so much attention been brought on one man? Glad you asked, or else this week’s Leftist Lexicon was going to be a few words short.

Jim Acosta

What the Left thinks it means – a hard-nosed reporter holding the Trump White House to task and risking life and limb to get us the truth

What it really means – a loudmouth with a Napoleon complex to rival the original Napoleon

When I went to journalism school, one of the first lessons that got pounded into me was a reporter was never to become the story because it distracts people from the actual news. I can’t say if Jim Acosta learned that lesson, but judging from his actions I guess he must have been sick that day…each time it was brought up in a class.

Acosta’s contempt for the Trump Administration has seen itself play out in numerous conflicts, which has made him a Leftist superstar. To hear Leftists talk, Acosta is the only one who asks really tough questions and hounds the Administration for answers. Of course, to hear Leftists talk, socialism hasn’t ever really been tried, so we don’t know whether it will suck out loud. (Spoiler Alert: it will suck out loud.)

As a recovering Leftist and former journalism student (which, these days is pretty much one in the same), I don’t see what Acosta is doing as journalism so much as it is agitprop. Agitprop is language crafted with the intent of enflaming the public to advocate for a certain idea or position, and it can be very effective. Remember the alar scare of the 1980s? That was agitprop in its purest form. And it turned out to be complete bunk after cooler heads did their homework and figured out what alar was.

That brings us back to Mr. Acosta. I know the press is supposed to be like attack dogs when it comes to reporting on the government, but there is still a fine line between being an attack dog and being an overbearing dick. And Acosta flamenco dances on that line consistently. His behavior is, at best, childlike, which oddly enough corresponds to his Lollypop Kid stature.

Sorry, Jim. That was a low blow. (Sorry. Couldn’t resist!)

And that’s part of the problem I have with Acosta. He just doesn’t look like one. He looks like a little brother who wants to hang out with his older brothers to be one of the guys, but he winds up being more annoying than cool. I know this because I am the youngest of three boys and I did exactly what Acosta seems to be doing while pretending to be a journalist. And he’s just as annoying as I was, or still am depending on who you ask.

The larger part of the problem I have with Acosta, though, is his disrespect for his profession and, more specifically, his colleagues. Yes, I know he works for CNN, which gives him as much gravitas as, well, anyone else who works at CNN. But Acosta seems to think it gives him the moral authority to run the White House Press Corps from the floor. That, in turn, gives him the moral authority to hog the spotlight, at least in his mind. The problem is…there are plenty of other reporters in the room when Acosta goes all Journo-Spartacus on the President, and I’m sure they would like to get their questions answered. But for the grace of the man who thinks he’s the God of Journalism go they, unfortunately, and he rarely if ever gives them a chance to go.

As far as CNN’s lawsuit against President Trump and members of his Administration is concerned, for me it’s a non-starter. The First Amendment will not be in jeopardy if Jim Acosta doesn’t get this press pass back because CNN can always find someone else to take his place. Yes, Jimmy, you are expendable.  If you are too much of a headache to deal with (and from accounts I’ve seen from other journalists, he is), you can and will be replaced by someone else. Just ask Keith Olbermann about that. The First Amendment doesn’t protect you from getting the hook because you’re an asshole, nor is it threatened if you are not allowed to be one during press conferences.

Yes, I know Fox News filed an amicus brief defending CNN and Acosta, but they are looking out for their business interests going forward. From 2009 to 2016, they were on the business end of a lot of Presidential harassment, so it makes sense for them to take up for their peer. But, really? Is Jim Acosta’s behavior the hill you want to die on? His presence in the room makes a mockery of the profession I learned and still respect on some level. And, news flash Fox News Kiddies, the next Democrat President will be as much, if not more, of a ballbuster than President Barack Obama was because Leftists don’t believe in the two-way street unless it benefits them directly.

And Jimbo, if you’re reading this, understand your bravado and behavior doesn’t make you the next Edward R. Murrow or Sam Donaldson. Yes, they asked tough questions and were adversarial when needed, but they understood where the line between adversarial and assholishness was. You clearly don’t, and it’s hurting your credibility, CNN’s credibility (or what’s left of it), and the credibility of the other reporters in that room. You are not a diva, but a divot.

To the Leftists out there who worship at the altar of Acosta, you need a better role model for journalists. Start with Murrow and see how a real newsman did it. Jim Acosta falls short every time.

Sorry, Jimbo. Had to throw in one last short joke, buddy.

Lack of Unity

It’s been a few days and I’ve been thinking about what Governor Kim Reynolds said earlier this week. If you haven’t been keeping up the Governor suggested that Iowa’s only Republican Congressman should consider leaving politics. This was not a good idea.

Iowa’s only Republican Congressman is the 4th district representative, Steve King. He is hated by the Left and RINO’s alike. I personally do not like him. It’s not his politics or the lies the Left tells about him. It’s his personality.

Also I am not in the 4th district. But if I was, I would have voted for Steve King.

Governor Reynolds needs to learn she cannot attack other Republicans. Calling out the RINO’s is perfectly acceptable but not attacks on other Republicans who are patriots and defenders of the Republic.

This action is a bad mark against the Governor. It may very well lead to a Primary vote leading up to the 2022 election cycle. This could be her only true term as the Governor of Iowa.
