Pelosi Hack: Memo To DCCC Staff On Black Lives Matter: Don’t Say “All Lives Matter” Or “Black-On-Black Crime”

"Most notable is advising Democrats not to say ‘All lives matter’ or to talk about ‘black-on-black crime’ as this is the ‘worst thing’ to say to Black Lives Matter activists.
"It describes BLM as “radical”, which is pretty accurate and notes that it extends beyond questions of police brutality to “criminal justice reform”. What they leave out is they don’t want reform, they want eliminate prisons and police.
"Notice also it advises: “Don’t offer support for concrete policy positions”. In other words, listen and pretend you care, while offering nothing."
What a wonderful government we have, eh?

Obama Sabotages Obamacare

Galen Institute  "The ACA and the administration’s whack-a-mole regulations are responsible for double-digit premium increases and for the exodus of insurers from selling individual policies in the ObamaCare exchanges.

"As health insurers head for the exits, Americans who have been whipsawed by ObamaCare may get whacked again this fall:  First, they were thrown off private plans that were declared illegal, then they were forced into the ObamaCare exchanges, and now they could face the prospect of being shut out of coverage through their exchanges entirely for 2017.
"In Arizona’s Pinal County, for example, no insurers are offering coverage through the exchange. While decisions won’t be final until next month, people in other counties could face a similar fate.
"Elsewhere, millions of Americans will have a “choice” of just one carrier, especially in rural areas. It’s likely that Alabama, Alaska, and Oklahoma will have only one health insurer selling individual coverage on their exchanges next year. South Carolina and most of North Carolina could join that list as well.
"Nearly one-third of the nation’s counties are likely to have just one insurer offering health plans on the exchanges next year: Last year, 50 Texas counties had only one insurer offering individual plans, according to data from the Texas Department of Insurance. Next year, Texans in 57 counties will have only one choice.  Exchange customers in many Florida counties will be offered only the Blues plans.
"United Healthcare, Humana, and some Blues plans were the first start the exodus from the ObamaCare exchanges.  But when Aetna CEO Mark Bertolini announced in mid-August that his company will dramatically reduce its individual public exchange participation to just four states, it created an earthquake." . . .

Ann Coulter  "Just when you think the media could not possibly become more loathsome, the Fourth Estate bullies prove you wrong again. The Washington Post's latest ugliness was to exploit the disability of a newspaper reporter in order to smear the Republican nominee for president. Then -- and this is the least surprising part of the story -- the Post lied about it. 

"Other than the subject of that paragraph -- which I slyly switched from Trump to the media -- that is an exact paraphrase of the Post's opening lines from an editorial hawking the media's most successful lie about Donald Trump: that he mocked a man for being disabled. 

"I have a chapter on that lie in my new book, In Trump We Trust: E Pluribus Awesome!, It was perfectly obvious that Trump was not mimicking any disability that Serge has, but I didn't have the smoking gun to prove that the media were lying and knew they were lying. Now we have it. 

"A group called 
Catholics 4 Trump has posted a video clip of another part of that same speech, in which Trump imitates a flustered general. Guess what? He does the exact same arm flailing. 

"In another speech, Trump pretended to be a timorous Ted Cruz. Again, he does the exact same arm flailing. You can see the videos here: 

""Neither the general nor Cruz is disabled. " . . .

. . . 
Washington Post Deletes Video Evidence Showing Trump Didn’t Mock Reporter’s Disability  

. . . "Of course, one of the actions the poll asked people to rate was “Trump’s criticism of a reporter that was seen as mocking the reporter’s physical disability.” Note “that was seen as…” Don’t you love it? Who saw it that way? People who watched the video of Trump with the media caption “Trump mocks disabled reporter” plastered on it? The media created the impression that Trump was mocking the reporter’s disability when in fact this was not the case as we have shown:" . . .

To what extent would the Clinton's ever cut ties with their foundation?

Too late! The Clinton's have many favors already bought and paid for by others through the foundation and have time to sell many more between now and her hoped-for inauguration.

WSJ: Some Democrats Tell Clinton to Cut Ties With Foundation

NYT: The Clintons Need To Cut Ties With The Foundation  "Well, when you lose The New York Times, maybe it’s a sign that the Clinton camp needs to work on something to quell the allegations that the power couple’s nonprofit is guilty of pay-to-play regarding donations, meetings with these donors, and good fortune being bestowed upon those contributors somewhere down the line after the checks have been made to be cashed. Huma Abedin, Clinton’s former deputy chief of staff at State, has been revealed to be the middle person who directed folks to the Clinton Foundation for meetings with the then-secretary (after being denied an audience through official channels) who were unable to be granted a face-to-face rendezvous. Oh, this was granted after a donation was made." . . .

The 49er quarterback discussion goes on . . .

Political Cartoons by Gary Varvel

Comedian Argus Hamilton remarked: 
"San Francisco quarterback Colin Kaepernick refused to stand for the national anthem Friday, saying it stands for racism even though he himself was adopted and raised by white parents. He’s now in talks with Hollywood to make a movie about his childhood. It’s called Eighteen Years a Slave
The Minnesota Vikings new stadium has "a see-through roof and two gigantic jumbo screens. In addition it has a plush reclining chair on the sideline for Colin Kaepernick to sit in during the national anthem when San Francisco comes to town."
Political Cartoons by Michael Ramirez

American Thinker contributors have much to say on this:

Where is the black Democrat telling Colin Kaepernick to shut up?
This is NOT my father's Democrat Party!
. . . "Here is the worst part: His message of black victimology was unchallenged. No one in the Congressional Black Caucus stood up and called Collin out.    No one in the Democrat Party defended the police from the outrageous lies that Kaepernick said.  . . . 
. . . "At the end of the day, who cares whether Kaepernick salutes the national anthem. Let him sit down! However, he has no right to attack the integrity of our police officers or pretend to be enlightened by wearing a Fidel Castro T-shirt!"
The cowardice of Colin Kaepernick 
Does he feel any compassion for mothers and fathers wondering if this is the day their children will not return from school?  Has he ever questioned the liberal policies of the killing field cities like Chicago and Baltimore, or do only black lives killed by police matter?  
Related to this:  . . . He should also speak to Milwaukee Sheriff David Clarke, who repeatedly has said, “The failed liberal government policies have led to high unemployment, chronic poverty, failing schools… Milwaukee has inescapable poverty. We’re like the sixth poorest city in America. You have massive black unemployment… You have dysfunctional families, you have father-absent homes, you have questionable lifestyle choices.”

Iran: 'We Welcome War With the U.S.'

PJ Media

. . . "The Iranian vessels harassed the USS Nitze, a destroyer, by “conducting a high speed intercept and closing within a short distance of Nitze, despite repeated warnings,” said the official. “The Iranian high rate of closure … created a dangerous, harassing situation that could have led to further escalation, including additional defensive measures by Nitze.”

"USS Nitze changed course to get away from the Iranian vessels, but Iran’s message was clear: it has been on a war footing against the United States since 1979, and continues to be. The Iran nuclear deal has only emboldened it.

"Iranian vessels now regularly confront U.S. ships in the Persian Gulf. The Obama administration has been deliberately hiding and downplaying these incidents.

"Think about the enormity of that: the White House is misleading Americans into thinking that Obama successfully achieved rapprochement with Iran." . . .
Obama is obviously trying to run out the clock and dump this all on the next administration. Any bloodshed coming from all this, our petulant, vindictive boy president will blame on the next president, just as he has blamed his own failures on President Bush.
From before his first day in office to his last, Obama has bowed to the Iranians just as the schoolboy does to the bully, giving him what he wants just to be left alone.
I have heard no Democrat speak out against this.  TD

Guilt by Association, Real vs Imagined

Karin McQuillan . . . "In contrast, Hillary actually does support BLM, a racist organization that promotes murder of whites.  She repeats the cop-killing lie that we have a racist justice system." . . .

. . . "Unlike Trump’s non-relationship with radicals in word, thought or deed, Obama has had lifelong radical ties.  His beloved teenage mentor, the odious child molester Frank Marshall, was an actual Communist.  As an adult, Obama was plucked from obscurity by terrorist Bill Ayers, who recruited Obama to join him on the Board of the Chicago Annenberg Challenge, where they distributed $100 million to radical causes.

"Not to forget Obama’s racist, anti-Semitic and openly Marxist pastor for decades, who led his congregation to cheer 9/11.  (Remember how you felt the week after 9/11?  Can you imagine staying in a church that cheered the bombing of the World Trade Towers?) Wright is a man who Obama loved, praised, quoted and invited to campaign with him.  Now we have Obama inviting to the White House the radical, cop-hating BLM movement that cheers assassination of cops."

"The contrast between the baseless accusations that Trump is a fringe candidate and the reality of Obama and Hillary Clinton’s lifelong radical associations could not be clearer.  Thanks to the liberal propaganda press, their voters will never know."

The 25 Questions From Judicial Watch That Hillary Must Answer Under Oath

"Judicial Watch on Tuesday submitted 25 questions for Hillary Clinton about her use of a private email system.
"U.S. District Court judge Emmet Sullivan granted the watchdog group the right to pose the questions to Clinton as part of the discovery process for its lawsuit against the State Department. Sullivan had denied Judicial Watch’s request to depose the Democratic presidential candidate.
"The 25 questions range from queries about why Clinton created her private email system to whether she was made aware about hacking attempts to her communications with Bryan Pagliano, the former State Department employee she paid off-the-books to manage the system.
“ 'Describe the creation of the system, including who decided to create the system, the date it was decided to create the system, why it was created, who set it up, and when it became operational,” reads Judicial Watch’s first entry."

RAAAAAYCIST!: ABC’s Amy Robach, Colored People & People of Color

"Is it just me, or is there no significant difference between the phrases “colored people” and “people of color”? Apparently, to stupid liberals the terms are incredibly different in level of grievance theater offense, even though they mean the exact same thing. Annoying ABC liberal Amy Robach learned the hard way.

"In this age of phony “post-racialism”–in which racism seems to be more alive then ever (on the part of Blacks and their legion of liberal White enablers)–the eggshells we walk on seem to be ever thinner and more brittle. And you have to watch every little thing you say. Well, I don’t because I don’t care. But people who are in public positions and are employed by mainstream employers do. And it’s not just getting ridiculous. It’s way far beyond ridiculous. Even the most politically-correct liberals get the brunt of it, which goes to show that you just can never say anything right–can never say anything that won’t offend an ever-growing group of whiners in the professional victimization crowd.

Image result for race baiters cartoons

"Using the N-word is one thing, but saying, “colored people”? Um, how is that different from the “preferred” “people of color”? It isn’t. Not any more than saying “Jewish people” is different than saying “people of the Jewish faith (or ethnicity).” They are simply the same thing.

"But since we live in a spoiled country, the whole of the internet came down on ABC’s “Good Morning America” co-hostess Amy Robach, who was delivering a “pop culture news report” (yeah, that’s how dumbed down we are–when a program has both a news report and a pop culture news report).

"You see, Robach reported on minorities and colored people . . . er, PEOPLE OF COLOR! whining that they are mad that White people are playing them in movies and TV shows. And in delivering that old news, Robach mentioned that “colored people” are upset.

"A ton of social media trolls attacked Robach as a RAAAAAYCIST!" . . .

Why Hillary Is Never Held Accountable for Her Lies

Image result for hillary lying cartoons
Daily LOL
Victor Davis Hanson  "Everyone rightly catalogues Donald Trump’s fibs, distortions, and exaggerations: his assertions about his net worth, his charitable contributions, his initial supposed opposition to the Iraq War, or his “flexible” positions on illegal immigration. After all, he is flamboyant, right-wing in his present incarnation, and supposedly bends the truth either out of crass narcissism or for petty profiteering. So the watchdog media and popular culture have no problem with ridiculing Trump as a fabricator. 

"But not so with Hillary Clinton, whose untruths far overshadow Trump’s in both import and frequency, but are so often contextualized, excused, and forgotten because of who she is and the purpose her outright lying supposedly serves. 

"Lying in America has become not lying when “good” liars advance alternative narratives for noble purposes — part of our long slide into situational ethics and moral relativism." . . .

Leftist lying:
If Rachel Dolezal and Shaun King reconstruct themselves as black Americans, then their “stories” are as legitimate as any others, given their progressive agendas and their antitheses to the white male power structure. 
 And Obama:
Obama himself can invent large chunks of his “autobiography” and it is neither a lie nor a fable, given that his principled intent was to enlighten us about the burdens of growing up as the Other.

The racial grievance left’s crazy train picking up speed

Richard F. Miniter   "A woman by the name of Nina Revoyr had an op-ed in the Los Angeles Times on Sunday entitled “What’s missing when you hike the California backcountry? People of color.”  Here,  But it’s better entitled “Climbing Aboard The Crazy Train.”

"Because Nina believes (or says she believes) that one reason that “people of color” are not well represented in the hiking and camping community is that:
For many, the wilderness, historically, is dangerous territory. Escaped slaves passed through forests full of danger …
"Of course, a scholar might ask if anybody anywhere at any time in all the immense body of literature recording the black experience in America ever noted a tendency on the part of black parents to pass on a fear of the forests.

"But scholarship hasn’t very much attraction to race-baiters like Ms. Revoyr, who’ll seize upon any silliness to illustrate how steeped in hatred America is even to the point of reformulating Congressman Alcee Hastings’s wacko idea that national parks are racist because blacks were once lynched from trees and there are any number of trees in those parks (see the Frontpage Magazine article here).

"Or was she not race-baiting at all, and just having a bad day?  Let’s look."  . . .

Watch SJW Woman Berate Lyft Driver Over His Dashboard Hoola Girl Until He Kicks Her Out

Daily Wire  "Rebel Media commentator Lauren Southern (pictured, right) uploaded a video she was anonymously sent showing an insane Social Justice Warrior (redundant) laying into her driver for having a classic dashboard hoola(sp) girl displayed in his car.

Colin Kaepernick, Meet Henry Johnson (Updated)

David French at National Review  . . . "The problem is that Kaepernick does not sit alone. There exists a class of people who believe this country isn’t worth respecting — much less fighting for — so long as “injustice” endures. Their version of “patriotism” is a form of hatred. They claim to love the American idea, but they will continue to withhold that love until the idea becomes reality. 

"The men who truly built this country were not so double-minded. The men who built this country could love their nation even during darker times — and lay down their lives in its defense. Consider the example of Sergeant Henry Johnson.

"Johnson, a black American, was born in 1897 in North Carolina, a state that as a matter of law, culture, and policy comprehensively oppressed its black citizens. He was born during what may have been the peak decade of a wave of lynchings that terrorized black communities across the South." . . .

White House defends Obama evading Senate on Paris climate deal

Washington Times

It would surprise no one if President Obama and Chinese President Xi Jinping were to announce the ratification of the sweeping climate change agreement before the Sunday opening of the Group of 20 summit in Hangzhou, Zhejiang. (Associated Press)

"The White House on Monday defended President Obama’s decision to enter into the Paris climate accord without Senate ratification but stopped short of confirming a Chinese report that he will do so this week during his trip toChina.
"Still, it would surprise no one if Mr. Obama and Chinese President Xi Jinping were to announce the ratification of the sweeping climate change agreement before the Sunday opening of the Group of 20 summit in Hangzhou, Zhejiang.
"White House senior adviser Brian Deese said the president has the legal authority to ratify the accord without the two-thirds Senate vote required for treaties. He said the pact negotiated by 195 countries in December is merely an “executive agreement.”
“The president will use his authority that has been used in dozens of executive agreements in the past to join and formally deposit our instrument of acceptance, and therefore put our country as a party to the Paris Agreement,” Mr. Deese said at a White House press conference.
"He noted that both presidents announced in March that they “would seek to formally join the Paris Agreement in 2016.' ” . . .

ESPN Replaces Mike Ditka After Calling President Obama 'The Worst President We've Ever Had'

AllThatsNews . . . "It seems that Ditka is now being punished for his honesty and for speaking out against the President because it was revealed that he is now being replaced as a panelist on ESPN's Sunday NFL Countdown. In 2013, Ditka said that not running against Obama in the Illinois 2004 Senate race was the "biggest mistake" he had ever made. Ditka said, "Not that I would have won. But I probably would have and he wouldn't be in the White House."
"At the time, Obama said that the NFL legend "immediately becomes a favorite" if he entered the race. In 2011, President Obama invited the 1985 Chicago Bears Team, which Ditka coached to a Super Bowl victory, to the White House. During the ceremony, Ditka presented Obama with a personalized Bears jersey and called him "one of us.' "

Soros’s campaign of global chaos

Caroline Glick


"Major media outlets in the US have ignored the leak of thousands of emails from billionaire George Soros’s Open Society Foundation by the activist hacker group DCLeaks. The OSF is the vehicle through which Soros has funneled billions of dollars over the past two decades to non-profit organizations in the US and throughout the world.
"According to the documents, Soros has given more than $30 million to groups working for Hillary Clinton’s election in November, making him her largest single donor. So it is likely the case that the media’s support for Clinton has played some role in the mainstream media’s bid to bury the story.
"It is also likely however, that at least some news editors failed to understand why the leaked documents were worth covering. Most of the information was already public knowledge. Soros’s massive funding of far left groups in the US and throughout the world has been documented for more than a decade.
"But failing to see the significance of the wider story because many of the details were already known is a case of missing the forest for the trees. The DCLeaks document dump is a major story because it exposes the forest of Soros’s funding networks.
"The first thing that we see is the megalomaniacal nature of Soros’s philanthropic project. No corner of the globe is unaffected by his efforts. No policy area is left untouched." . . .

On Soros and the Black Lives Matter movement:
Black Lives Matter, which has received $650,000 from Soros-controlled groups over the past year is a classic example of these efforts. Until recently, the police were universally admired in the US as the domestic equivalent of the military. BLM emerged as a social force bent on politicizing support for police. Its central contention is that in the US, police are not a force for good, enabling society to function by maintaining law and order. Rather, police are a tool of white repression of blacks.

 Law enforcement in predominantly African American communities is under assault as inherently racist.

BLM agitation, which has been accused of inspiring the murders of police in several US cities, has brought about two responses from rank and file police. First, they have been demoralized, as they find themselves criminalized for trying to keep their cities safe from criminals.

 Second, their willingness to use force in situations that demand the use of force has diminished. Fear of criminal charges on the one hand, and public condemnation as “racists” on the other causes police to prefer inaction even when situations require that they act.

Why the Obama and the NAACP rejection of charter schools

Education Next: Why Does the NAACP Oppose Charter Schools?
"This summer, at its national convention, the NAACP voted to support a moratorium on the growth of charter schools. Why?
"As Paul E. Peterson notes in US News, this decision is puzzling for a number of reasons.  Read here.
ednext-aug2016-blog-ototn-naacp-charters"First of all:  Forty-eight percent of African Americans say they favor the formation of charters, while only 29 percent stand in opposition, with the remainder taking the neutral position. In fact the opinions of African-Americans resemble those of the American public as a whole – 51 percent support, 28 percent oppose, 21 percent neutral.

The NAACP is about teachers' unions, not black children  . . . "So what's going on?  Why would the nation's oldest civil rights group deny African-American children a real opportunity to succeed?
"My guess is that most of these NAACP leaders send their kids to private schools anyway.  In other words, what do they care?
"More importantly, the Democratic Party is owned by the public-sector unions.  It's good for the party on election day, but it does not do minority parents any good when they try to educate their kids.

Everything You Need to Know About the NAACP’s Stance on Charter Schools  
. . . "There’s not much survey data specifically on how Black parents feel about charter schools nationally, but it’s pretty clear that they resoundingly support a parent’s right to choose the best school for their child.
  • 72 percent of Black parents believe that charter schools offer options to low-income communities rather than take resources from traditional public schools. (Education Post, August 2015).
  • 82 percent of Black parents say families should be allowed to choose their child’s public school, regardless of where they live (NAPCS, April 2016).
  • 70 percent of Black voters support more school options for parents, including traditional public schools, charters and even voucher and scholarship programs (BAEO survey of four states in August 2015).
