Protecting Joe

The stage was set.  CNN had the evening nicely positioned for a Town Hall with President Biden.  A liberal audience in Baltimore along with the very friendly Anderson Cooper who’s been there before.  What could go wrong?

Nothing.  Well, maybe one thing.

Nobody watched.

Just 1.3 million viewers tuned in.  Fox News crushed the Biden exposition, even the hapless MSNBC had significantly more viewers.  Now, that circumstance happens daily on the Cable News Network because it’s largely boring and biased. But when you heavily promote a 90 minute special with the President of the United States, you expect more than 1.3.  Come on, man, there are 330-million people in this country!

Joe Biden, himself, was energetic and fairly relaxed on camera.  He understood that CNN had gathered audience questions in advance and there would be few of a challenging nature.  Mr. Biden also knew that Cooper would save him if he faltered – and old Anderson came through by quickly getting away from the border issue.

From the start, Mr. Biden stayed on message by promising to give Americans trillions of dollars in government subsidies.  Even when a civilian asked when gas prices would drop, Joe predicted next year but don’t worry about it.  There are government giveaways that will compensate for higher fuel costs. Joey Warbucks is on the case.

Sadly, the question and answer format was tedious.  Largely because the President has no solutions to problems and Cooper wouldn’t ask probing questions because the fix was in.

Example.  Mr. Biden adamantly supports Covid mandates and the left-leaning audience applauded his opinion. At that point, Anderson Cooper could have asked a very simple but necessary question: “Mr. President, if mandates suppress the spread of Covid, why does Florida have the lowest transmission rate in the nation. As you know, Florida passed a law BANNING mandates.”

Again, Mr. Cooper could have asked that question.  And CNN could apologize for totally botching the “Russian-collusion” thing.

Neither will ever happen.

My favorite moment was when Joe Biden actually told the world he hasn’t had time to visit the southern border, which is under siege from foreign nationals.  No joke, Mr. Biden said he has no time. Anderson Cooper just stood there, mouth closed.

And now you know why the American people don’t have time to watch the President on CNN.

The Steal

It was always wrong.  But no one could explain exactly how votes were being corrupted in the 2020 presidential election.  Trump legal people like Rudy Giuliani and Sydney Powell ran around condemning voting machines and promoting shady allegations of fraud.  But they could never produce forensic evidence of wrongdoing – and both have suffered greatly for their advocacy.

Attorney General William Barr publicly stated that election fraud was committed. Then he disappeared.  To this day, President Trump is crazed over the vote. But he and his supporters were on the wrong trail.

I, your humble correspondent, watched closely as the situation unfolded. Corruption in precincts like Detroit, Atlanta, and Philadelphia is not exactly unheard of – is it?

But, again, no hard evidence came forward and I accurately reported that.

Now, a terrible picture is beginning to emerge and ground zero is Silicon Valley, California.

That’s where Mark Zuckerberg lives.  The Facebook chief apparently took a very large financial interest in the Trump/Biden race for the White House.  How large? Well, how about $420 million dollars.

According to a number of reports which have not been denied, Mr. Zuckerberg donated that colossal amount of money to couple of “non-partisan,” tax-exempt political operations:  The Center for Technology and Civic Life and The Center for Election Innovation and Research.

Turns out these two “centers” are about as non-partisan as Nancy Pelosi.

Reporter Mollie Hemingway, who works for Heritage, investigated the Zuckerberg situation and calls it “genius.”

Here’s how it worked.

  • “Vote Navigators” were paid well to canvas mostly poor neighborhoods that traditionally vote for Democrats. Often, these ballot mercenaries would go inside the homes of voters.
  • Even though it is a crime in all 50 states to “electioneer” at polling places where you walk into and vote, it is not a criminal activity for a third party to interfere with a mail-in ballot.  That’s the vital loophole.
  • Thousands of navigators flooded the democrat precincts In Wisconsin, Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, and Virginia – all states that were close between Biden and Trump.
  • The navigators “assisted” voters in filling out ballots and, at times, “cured” mistakes.  That means they corrected ballots so they wouldn’t be thrown out.
  • Sometimes the hired political guns took the actual ballots from the folks and brought them to polling places.  That is called “bundling.”

The result was a much higher vote count for Joe Biden, as citizens who rarely participate in elections did so with the tutoring.

So, now we know why the left loves mail-in ballots so much.  They can easily be manipulated with guys like Zuckerberg donating cash to make it happen.

By the way, Marky Mark broke no laws. What he did was perfectly legal and if the states don’t crack down on this colossal con, it will happen again in 2024.

Donald Trump lost some of the states mentioned above by extremely small margins.  So, this is an enormously important story.

But chances are you will not see it on the network news because the fix is in there, as well.  A situation of this magnitude should be front page, lead on TV, for days.

That will not happen and “the steal” could very well continue next time around.  So goes our democracy.

Eyes Wide Shut

Perhaps the most incompetent president in American history arrived in Chicago last week to encourage Windy City residents to vax up.  Joe Biden was on a mission to save lives, he said.  He was looking out for the folks.  He is the Covid slayer.

Long-time Chicago journalist John Kass was outraged as Biden met with Mayor Lori Lightfoot and Illinois Governor J. B. Pritzker.  Obsessed with the vaccine, the President failed to address the slaughter of primarily black people on the streets of Chicago.  The violence has been going on for years and the Democratic machine that controls the city doesn’t care if young black children become homicide stats as 7-year-old Serenity Broughton did a few weeks ago.  Serenity and her six-year-old sister, Aubrey, were sitting in their parent’s car when the bullets suddenly came. Aubrey was shot in the chest but survived.

Joe Biden most likely doesn’t know about the little girls and, based upon his rhetoric and actions, couldn’t care less.  What he SHOULD know is that Democrat prosecutors in the nation’s three largest cities, New York, Los Angeles, and Chicago, routinely drop felony charges against violent individuals.  Ask any cop in those towns. The law enforcement strategy embraced by the progressive movement is directly leading to thousands of violent deaths across this country.

So, where is President Biden on the issue? Nowhere, that’s where.  He’s too busy calling his own country a racist place to actually deal with real racism: the horrendous murder toll among African-Americans.

Joe Biden doesn’t have to think about that safe in his Rehoboth Beach enclave.  He can’t see the drug gangs wielding weapons from his cloister inside the White House. In fact, Mr. Biden is totally blind on just about every serious problem the nation faces.

He’s not alone.  Governor Pritzker, a corpulent poser with a bad dye job, has run Illinois into the ground.  This year alone, 185 people have been shot driving on Chicago Expressways.  But Pritzker is safe; he has a state police escort.

Biden and his band of progressive deconstructionists are gravely harming all Americans.  The collapse of public safety on the streets and at the border is obvious if you want to look.

But Joe Biden doesn’t want to look. He is too busy doing what his far-left handlers tell him to do – too befuddled to actually run the country in an effective way.

He is truly a man with his eyes wide shut.

Beware, the Pronoun

With sincere apologies to Jesus, there are some people I cannot abide by.  I do believe we are all God’s children, but certain folks I have encountered need to go to boarding school.  Forever.  So I don’t have to deal with them.

UnChristian?  Certainly.  Intolerant, all day long.  I hope the deity forgives me.

My judgmental attitude really kicked into gear during the late 1960s.  That was the time when young people actually said things like: “It’s far out, man.  Groovy, not a drag at all.  Know what I’m sayin’?  Right on!”

Right back.  Then I disappeared faster than a muffin on a cruise ship.

Cliches drive me insane but using words to fill the air with foolish garbage is far worse.  So, now, I would like to warn you about contemporary words and phrases that signal danger.

Let’s begin with “cisgender.”  This word is almost always used by leftists who flunked biology.  It means “a person whose sense of identity corresponds with birth sex.” So, if you’re born a male you act like a boy and later a man.  That’s cisgender.

However, woke people object and I guess they also despise the Spencer Davis Group who once loudly wailed: “I’m a man, yes I am, and I can’t help but love you so!”

If you hear a person lamenting “cisgender” behavior, run fast.

Next up is ” empower.”  This word is mostly used by folks who believe they are victims and want to arrange some payback.  Don’t wait around.

Then there are people who demand “safe spaces.”  Once again, they are often among the victim crew who are constantly offended by “micro-aggressions.”  If you are near someone seeking a “safe space,” follow Paul Simon’s simple philosophy: “just slip out the back, Jack…”

And finally, people who object to “cultural appropriation.”  Those folks amuse me from a distance because I won’t get anywhere near them.  There is a big list of banned Halloween costumes because of CA.

Let’s see.  Want to dress up as Cochise, the great Apache chief?  Are you freakin’ kidding?  Sociology students from Yale will burn down your house.

How about wearing a Mexican sombrero? Uh, no.  But you can dress up like a leprechaun on St. Patrick’s Day.  Can’t figure that one out.

Back to the Eve of All Hallows.  Mrs. Doubtfire?  No.  Dustin Hoffman as Tootsie, don’t even think about it.  George Washington?  Slaveowner.  General Patton, way too many micro-aggressions!

Peter Pan?  Watch it.  Cinderella?  Too dependent on the prince and cisgender to boot.  Pinnochio, the nose might make some feel bad.

The list of banned costumes and words is endless.  The entire cultural madness we are seeing is right out of “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest”.  About the only thing sane people can do is employ another phrase from the 1960s.

Beat feet.

The Rules

Man, it’s not easy to be a woke progressive these days.  So many controversies, so little time to think up ways to justify a far-left lifestyle.  It’s crazy.  So, I am here to help.  Here are some rules to lighten the burden of woke Americans.

No criticism of minority communities. Don’t do it, ever.  The CDC says only about 30 percent of African-Americans have accepted Covid vaccinations.  A very low number.  Blacks have a reason to be suspicious of authority but, again, ignore the situation.  Concentrate on demonizing Trump voters who are anti-vax.

Sometimes you will have to shake your head when President Biden comes up in conversation.  But never, ever concede that he may be incompetent.  Just deflect back to Trump.  The best way to protect your guy Joe is to despise Donald.  Easy one, right?

On the collapse of the southern border always play the “compassion card.”  That makes you noble and then you can dismiss those who would like to see immigration laws enforced as horrible, mean individuals.  Have a quote handy from Pope Francis to do this.

But never use the Pope on abortion.  He called it “homicide” last week.  How dare he?  That’s an outrage.  Fetal heartbeat – doesn’t matter.  Make it clear that you, the progressive, worship at the altar of reproductive rights.  Play the “women’s rights” card because you’ll draw a straight flush.

Do not, I repeat do not – say you’re a socialist.  Even if you are.  Bernie Sanders has it covered so you don’t need to be Leon Trotsky.  If someone asks you point-blank ‘are you a socialist?’ you immediately quote John Belushi …”nooooooooooo!”

However, you should always point out that billionaires and corporations aren’t paying their “fair share.”  Now, I understand that mantra may be vastly overused but so what?  It shuts up those greedy capitalists, right?

Finally, the most important progressive rule is to find offense.  This is your daily chore.  You must be offended at least five times a day so you can lash out on Twitter against the oppressors.  This rule has been very effective on college campuses and is perfect for shutting down opposing points of view.  Simply say “I don’t feel safe.”  Then point out who is scaring you and demand they be punished.

This is the core woke rule: no opposition will be tolerated under any circumstances because you are frightened of “micro-aggressions” and have a perfect right to be.

Summing up, I hope all of you progressives feel better, safer, and more “empowered” after hearing these rules. And one more thing.  Forget about the Golden Rule that says treat others as you would like to be treated.  That’s obsolete. Today, it’s my way or we bury you under the highway.

An excellent progressive rule for the road, so to speak.
