Levin: The MSM is “Fueling the Flames” of Possible Post-Presidential Election Rioting…Why He is Right and Why They are Doing It

The year is 1903. The Russian Social Democratic Party is meeting in London. All the intellectuals in their party have been arguing since the end of the 1800’s as to the direction the party should take. One year earlier, in 1902, a man named Lenin, living in exile, wrote a paper entitled, “What Is To Be Done”.

The work was smuggled into Russia and spelled out his views regarding what the Social Democrats should be doing as a party. Lenin attacked party members who “were content to wait while history took its predetermined course.” Rather than wait, Lenin wanted to kick-start the issue he believed in to get things done rather than wait on intellectuals sitting around refuting each other’s ideas. The meeting resulted in a Party split creating the Mensheviks and the Bolsheviks. The two factions reunited under Lenin in April 1905. Lenin went on to organize the November 1917 Russian Revolution on the Promise of “peace. bread, and land”.

That was then. This is now.

FoxNews.com reports that

The mainstream media is “fueling the flames” of potential post-Election Day rioting by left-wing activists while ignoring underhanded and ethically questionable tactics by Democrats in order to entrap President Trump in a situation where he is seen as a “dictator,” syndicated radio host Mark Levin argued Thursday.

“Who is it that’s changing election laws in the battleground states? Democrats,” the “Life, Liberty & Levin” host said, accusing governors of doing so by “executive fiat” and by “cherry-picking” judges and politically friendly court jurisdictions to get favorable rulings.

Addressing the uproar over President Trump declining to commit to a “peaceful transition of power” when asked by Playboy reporter Brian Karem at a White House briefing Wednesday, Levin accused the journalist of “implicitly” foreshadowing post-Election Day rioting.

“Who is threatening to riot?” Levin asked. “Members of the National Rifle Association or pro-life groups? It’s Black Lives Matter and Antifa.”

The host then mimicked the purported tenor of Karem’s question.

“You have to give up, no matter what, you have to lose, we the media, we Democrats, we have traps set for you,” Levin continued. “You can’t win, Mr President — we’ve got it all set now — so will you commit here today that you will surrender?

“The media are now fueling the flames for riots and violence beyond what you’ve seen after the election … the narrative has already been set: If Trump is winning on Election Night, he cannot declare himself the victor because we have all these mail-in ballots to count — for weeks [plus] litigation galore,” he went on.

Levin said that while the media obsesses over Trump’s remarks, they intentionally ignore questionable conduct by Democrats and the Biden campaign.

“Who is it that has hired over 600 ambulance-chasing lawyers … positioned in all the battleground states and all the counties to litigate?” he asked. “The Biden campaign! Who is threatening riots in the streets if they don’t win the election? Those are Biden voters!

“Who is it that is trying to crash the system with mail-in votes knowing full well a lot of these states aren’t going to be able to handle this thing? The Biden campaign.”

All of this activity by the Far Left Democratic Party is the latest chapter of a National Liberal Temper Tantrum which began the night of November 8, 2016, when Republican Candidate Donald J. Trump beat Democratic Candidate Hillary Clinton for the job of President of the United States of America.

However, I feel that there is much more at state than just Far Left Ideologues hyperventilating.

Gentle readers, we are in a civil war for the very soul of our Sovereign Nation.

As was the case in the Russian Revolution, any “Democratic Socialist” nation we see around our Modern World, went through a course-altering revolution, whether through a violent overthrow of the Government or through a “radical change” in the political ideology of their nation and the way that their populace voted in the subsequent election.

I firmly believe that the mission of Billionaire Financier George Soros and all of the Far Left Organizations and Democratic Party Politicians whom he supports, is what his political puppet, Former (Thank God) President Barack Hussein Obama, said that his was during his first presidential campaign: to “radically change” our nation into something that every patriotic American will no longer recognize.

America’s Alt-Left, which President Trump identified by name during the 2017 “Press Conference which shall forever be known as the “Trump Tower Thrashing” is a fringe group of radicalized young people, who grew up during the Obama Administration being programmed by “Organizing for America”, Liberal College Professors, and a pop culture which told them that to love America and to respect her history and those who had gone before them, was “jingoistic”.

They were told that it was evil to try to be better than others….to achieve and make their own way.

They were told that everyone “should be equal” and those who do achieve should “share the wealth”.

This programming led these young minds full of mush to become the “useful idiots” (as Communists used to call their dupes in the Cold War) whom we have been watching on television as they attack America’s History, our Constitutional method of deciding our leaders, and our duly elected President.

Now with the almost-daily riots featuring George Soros’ covert and overt support of perpetually-grieved protesters, paid to stage organized demonstrations which morph into riots, and the “Alt” or Far-Left, through funding by Soros, Communist Organizations, and other sources, we find that America is now facing our own version of Lenin’s Bolsheviks.

Along with the physical attacks required to create a revolution, you must also have a “Propaganda Arm”.

For the last several decades, Americans have witnessed the Fourth Estate, America’s Main Stream Media, slowly but surely lose their objectivity to become a Propaganda Arm for the Far Left Democratic Party.

While their reporting became decidedly one-sided, it was not a great danger to the country even though it was a completely different sort of propaganda than when President Franklin Delano Roosevelt used the Main Stream Media to support the American effort in World War II.

Then, the 1980s arrived and along with it a new era in mass communications. Cable News Networks began springing up, increasing the role of the media in our daily lives.

Because of this new role, news organizations increased in their power and their influence in our daily lives. However, with this increased role came the responsibility to fill a 24-hours a day, 7 days a week, 52 weeks a year, with new stories.

When actual new stories became hard to find, human interest stories began to fill the time, and when they ran out, news organizations decided to act like the National Enquirer and started to make news up.

Also, as the years wore on, America’s newsrooms became bastions of Liberal thought as more and more Conservatives left the business simply due to attrition and being squeezed out by young Liberal reporters who were a product of American universities which had become fountains of anti-American Political Activism.

Of course, these Liberal news reporters were members of the Democratic Party as it moved to the left of the political Spectrum. So, naturally, these reporters started reporting news more and more favorably to their political party of choice while keeping with their own personal political philosophy.

We all remember what happened when Barack Obama appeared on the political scene.

The Main Stream Media treated him as if it his appearance on the political scene was the Second Coming.

The Main Stream Media had finally become political activists instead of just political observers and pundits.

And, that is where we find ourselves today.

The Main Stream Media did everything in its power as political activists, working as the Propaganda Arm of the Democratic Party, to keep Donald J. Trump from being elected President of the United States of America.

Since his election, they have deliberately posted false and scurrilous news stories designed to impede and threaten his presidency.

While Americans remain in danger of losing both our lives and our freedom from a coronavirus which originated in a country which would love for America to be knocked down a peg or two, China, all of the MSM and their masters, the Democratic Party Elite, can think about is trying to use the crisis to damage President Trump, who is doing his job and trying to save American lives.

Additionally, while President Trump continues to work hard for the American people, the Main Stream Media continues to work against all of us…except for the Far Left Democrat Party and their foot soldiers in Antifa and BLM, who are doing their best to destroy major American cities.

And now, as the Great One, Mark Levin, pointed out, they are attempting to intimidate voters by warning of riots if President Trump is reelected.

And, they wonder why Trump’s Popularity Poll numbers keep rising and nobody trusts them anymore.

Barr to Levin: Antifa/BLM Riots are a New Form of “Urban Guerrilla Warfare” Driven by the Left’s “Lust for Power”

Barr and Levin

FoxNews.com reports that

The United States is grappling with a new form of “urban guerrilla warfare” driven by the left’s “lust for power,” Attorney General William Barr told “Life, Liberty & Levin” on Sunday.

Discussing the ongoing Black Lives Matter riots rippling through several U.S. cities, Barr told host Mark Levin that the organization —  which has been characterized by the media as a fed-up activist group —  is comprised of “Bolsheviks” with a focus on on “some form of socialism, communism.”

“They are a revolutionary group that is interested in some form of socialism, communism. They’re essentially Bolsheviks. Their tactics are fascistic,” he said.

Barr compared the nationwide riots organized by Antifa to “a new form of urban guerrilla warfare.”

“The way the guerrilla…hides out among the people as a fish in the ocean…what they do is they are essentially shielding themselves or shrouding themselves in First Amendment activity,” he explained. “They go into the demonstrations, which are exercising First Amendment activity, and they insinuate themselves in there to shield themselves. That’s where they swim. And what they do is they hijack these demonstrations and they and they provoke violence.”

The group’s radical leanings are reflective of the Democratic party’s far-left shift in recent years, Barr said. “The left has “pulled away from the umbrella of classical liberal values that have undergirded” America and made a “secular religion” out of seeking “complete political victory,” he argued.

It began the day Trump won in 2016, “and from that point forward, there’s been the resistance,” Barr told Levin.  “They were trying to impeach him from Day One. They have done everything they can..and I think it’s because of the desire for power that the left wants.”

Power has become a “secular religion of the left,”  Barr asserted. “They want to run people’s lives so they can design utopia for all of us…and it’s the lust for power. And they weren’t expecting Trump’s victory. And it outrages them.”

Barr later condemned the media for “projecting a narrative” and selling a “lie” to the American people in their watered-down coverage of the civil unrest.

“You don’t see it on the networks. You don’t see it on the other cable stations. And yet you hear about these peaceful demonstrators. So it’s you know, it’s just it’s a lie. The American people are being told a lie by the media,” Barr said.

The media has become “extremely monolithic,” he concluded, “and it’s wedded in many ways to the Democratic Party.”

Back on September 3, 2017, Foxnews.com reported that

Well before the deadly Aug. 12 rally in Charlottesville and the ongoing violent clashes with white supremacists and other groups, federal authorities warned local officials the actions of left-wing extremists were becoming increasingly confrontational and dangerous.

Federal agencies warned of the growing likelihood of lethal violence between left-wing anarchists and right-wing white supremacists.

Some even classified their activities as “domestic terrorist violence.”

In previously unreported documents dating back to April 2016 and viewed by Fox News, the FBI and Department of Homeland Security wrote that “anarchist extremists” and Antifa groups were the primary instigators of violence at public rallies. They blamed these groups for attacks on police, government and political institutions, racists, fascists and “symbols of capitalism.”

The agencies warned the rise of fascist, nationalist, racist or anti-immigrant groups in U.S. political discourse could lead to violent backlash from these “anarchist extremists.”

The FBI and DHS had no comment on the assessments, saying they were not intended to be made public.

Well, gosh. Why did the President of the United States of America, Barack Hussein Obama, not act upon the threat of violence from a Radical Leftist Group?

Well, Here are a couple of quotes from the Former President and First Wookie…err…Lady that provide some clues.

“We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America.” — Barack Obama, October 30, 2008

“We are going to have to change our conversation; we’re going to have to change our traditions, our history; we’re going to have to move into a different place as a nation.” — Michelle Obama, May 14, 2008 

When Obama would use phrases such as “fundamentally transforming” and “radically change” during his campaign for the Presidency and later when he took office, Americans wondered what he meant by them.

We soon found out.

If the Main Stream Media would have properly vetted Obama, as they had Presidential Candidates before him, they would have found that his past was littered with associations with “fellow travelers”, like American Communist/Pedophile Frank Marshall Davis and…this guy…

In 1995, Cop Killer and Former Weather Underground Member  “Bomber” Bill Ayers and his wife Bernadette Dorn hosted a fund-raiser for Obama prior to Obama’s run for Alice Palmer’s seat in the state Senate  and Ayers donated $200 to Obama’s upcoming state Senate campaign.

On Thursday, April 27th of this year, the following information was posted in an article found on gatewaypundit.com

Violent domestic terrorist Bill Ayers is officially linked to Antifa through his group “Refuse Fascism”.

Ayers is infamous for the Weather Underground, a domestic terror organization he co-founded with other degenerates, and for bombing the Pentagon.

“Refuse Fascism“, a fascist organization that wishes to inhibit and deny the speech of conservatives, is partly funded by George Soros. It has organizers like Bill Ayers and is targeting youth across the country with the intention of indoctrinating and brainwashing individuals who nascent politically. We know Ayers was associated with Barrack Obama and is a big supporter of various socialists and communists as well as violent terrorists.

Today, it has come out that Ayers is partnering with Antifa in the spread of militant violence against pro-America demonstrators. Leftists have historically turned Ayers into a folklore figure who they cherish and respect despite his violent past.

That article in turn referenced another article found on breitbart.com on February 3rd of that same year, which related the following information…

One of the far-left “anti-fascist” groups behind last week’s riot in Berkeley, Refuse Fascism, received $50,000 from a group backed by socialist billionaire George Soros, according to the Daily Caller.

The Alliance for Global Justice, which is funded by the George Soros-backed Tides Foundation, reportedly donated $50,000 to fund Refuse Fascism, which openly brags about using violence to shut down conservative and libertarian speech. 

“While it is unclear whether those who carried out the violence were paid to do so, the benefactors of the Alliance for Global Justice — and Refuse Fascism — are listed online,” reported the Daily Caller. “According to its most recent 990 tax form, Alliance for Global Justice (AfGJ) received $2.2 million in funding for the fiscal year ending in March 2016. One of the group’s biggest donors is the Tides Foundation, a non-profit funded by billionaire progressive philanthropist George Soros. Tides gave AfGJ $50,000.”

And, of course, the Puppet Master himself, George Soros, helped to fund Obama as well.

Obama chose not to pursue any investigations of the Antifa and other Far Left Groups like BLM, who might possibly turn violent in the future, because his own political ideology, while not overtly violent, was similar enough that he completely understood and empathized with his “Fellow Travelers.”.

And now, here we are.

America’s New Bolsheviks are attempting to accomplish what Lenin’s Bolsheviks achieved: an overthrow of a sitting government.

It is apparent that the Far Left Democrats, including Ex-President Obama and his Mentors and Benefactors George Soros and “Bomber” Bill Ayers, are a part of a movement whose purpose is to make average Americans submit to their political ideology of “forced Socialism through Fascism” by sabotaging the Presidency of Donald J. Trump and eliminate the Constitutional Right to Free Speech for Conservative Americans “by any means necessary”.

President Trump has already started to deal with this situation head on by using Federal Agents to arrest the “New Bolsheviks”.

It is not just the President who is taking a stand.

The backlash from average Americans against this bunch of wannabe anarchists and totalitarians is growing to the point where average Americans are beginning to forcibly escort these Marxist “useful idiots” out of their towns and suburbs when they attempt to start some of their anti-American garbage.

We are in a fight for the continued existence of our Constitutional Republic.

Those who have given their lives to secure our freedom paid too dearly and sacrificed too much for us to just sit back and let it be lost forever.

Hannity Tells Levin That the MSM “are State-Run Propaganda TV”…Why He is Exactly Right

Sean-Hannity-on-Levin_2018_07_02_screenshot

FoxNews.com reports that

Fox News host Sean Hannity compared the mainstream media to “state-run propaganda TV” in an interview on “Life, Liberty & Levin” Sunday, striking a serious tone as he detailed for viewers the significance of the upcoming November election.

“The media, the 99 percent… They are the propaganda wing of everything radical, extreme, Democratic, socialist. That’s it,” Hannity, the host of “Hannity” on Fox News Channel and the author of the forthcoming book “Live Free Or Die: America on the Brink,” told host Mark Levin.

“They are state-run propaganda TV.”

Hannity discussed what he described as the dire situation facing the United States should former Vice President Joe Biden defeat President Trump in November’s election, and condemned the media for “lying to the country for four years straight” in an effort to boot Trump from office and prevent him from winning a second term.

“The country was founded on Judeo-Christian principles and it has made us great,” Hannity said. “We’re moral people, we’re good people. Freedom has made us a better people. The media is so corrupt. They lied to this country for four straight years. They lied about Russia. They lied about collusion.”

Detailing the Democratic policies that threaten the values and rights enshrined in the American system, Hannity told Levin: “I have a five-alarm fire in my heart, my mind and my soul right now for this country.”

“Whenever you have socialism, radicalism, statism, that [tyranny] is usually what follows thereafter. I think everything that has made this country great, everything that has made us the shining city on the hill, is riding on this election,” he said.

Hannity theorized that socialist policies hold a “psychological appeal” to voters by implicitly promising to “remove all the natural stress in one’s life.”

“[Socialists say], ‘We’ll be taking care of a guaranteed government job, guaranteed government wage. We’re going to guarantee a government vacation. We’re going to guarantee government healthy food. We’re going to guarantee government health care. We’re going to guarantee government retirement,'” he said.

“Well, OK, let’s look at the history of how government in this country alone is now working,” he added. “You know, we see the anarchy. We see the violence. New York City, Chicago, Seattle, Portland, Los Angeles. It’s unfolding right before our very eyes. What do all of those cities have in common? They’ve all been run by liberal Democrats now for decades.”

Sean Hannity is exactly right.

For the last several decades, Americans have witnessed the Fourth Estate, America’s Main Stream Media, slowly but surely lose their objectivity to become a Propaganda Arm for the Democratic Party.

While their reporting became decidedly one-sided, it was not a great danger to the country even though it was a completely different sort of propaganda than when President Franklin Delano Roosevelt used the Main Stream Media to support the American effort in World War II.

The Shot Heard “‘Round the Conservative World”: Levin to Vote for Trump! (A KJ Analysis)

stay-home-600-ci

I think this is a binary election — at least for the country — that either Trump or Clinton will be president of the United States. I happen to think despite the CNN poll and so forth there is a lot of work to do to make up ground, particularly in battleground states. But Hillary is so awful I just don’t know. I’m not in the prediction business so it doesn’t matter.

So I’m going to vote for Donald Trump. I’m going to wind up voting for Donald Trump on election day. I take no responsibility for the dumb things he says or the dumb things his surrogates say. Just as I took no responsibility for the dumb things any candidate I vote for says whether it’s Congress, Senate, Supervisor, states attorney, other presidential candidates. I don’t control any of these people. I don’t run their campaigns and I don’t advise them. (The Mark Levin Show, September 6, 2016)

That announcement, boys and girls, was “the shot heard ’round the Conservative World”.

During this Presidential Campaign, I have lost friends and have watched longstanding Facebook Political Pages torn asunder over the candidacy of Billionaire Businessman, Entrepreneur, and Citizen Statesman Donald J. Trump.

So, excuse me if I take a bit of satisfaction over Mark Levin, for so long a spokesman for the “#NeverTrumpers” , finally admitting the obvious:

There are only two viable candidates left in November’s Presidential Election…and if you do not want Hillary Clinton to become the President of the United States of America, you must vote for Donald J. Trump!

The movement to elect Donald J. Trump as the next President of the United States of America defies “the rules” of Modern American Politics, just as the candidate himself does.

If Trump had “played by the rules”, regarding upholding the Washingtonian Status Quo, he would not be  the 2016 Republican Presidential Candidate and would not be current ahead in the polls.

From the day that he announced his candidacy, he has been fighting not only those on the Democrat Side of the aisle, who are determined to make the Queen of Mean, Hillary Clinton, our next President, but, also those Republicans, and self-proclaimed “True Conservatives”, who want to keep Trump from becoming President of the United States of America at all costs, even if it means sacrificing our children’s and grandchildren’s future to do it.

Chief among those and “leading the charge”, if you will, has been self-proclaimed “Libertarian” Glenn Beck, who, over the past few years, has transitioned from being an insightful political analyst with Conservative Leanings, to being a Modern Day Elmer Gantry, with a bit of Lonesome Rhodes thrown in for good measure.

For those of you who are not Classic Movie Buffs, please allow me to introduce you to these two “gentlemen”.

“Elmer Gantry”- Elmer Gantry (Burt Lancaster), a drunken, dishonest street preacher allegedly patterned on Billy Sunday, wrangles a job with the travelling tent ministry conducted by Sister Sharon Falconer (Jean Simmons). Thanks to Gantry’s enthusiastic hellfire-and-brimstone sermons, Sister Sharon’s operation rises to fame and fortune, enough so that Sharon realizes her dream of building her own enormous tabernacle. These ambitions are put in jeopardy when a prostitute (Oscar-winning Shirley Jones), a former minister’s daughter who’d been deflowered by Gantry years earlier, lures Gantry into a compromising situation and has photographs taken. It took several years for any Hollywood studio to take a chance with Sinclair Lewis’ novel, and when it finally did arrive on the screen, producer/director Richard Brooks was compelled to downplay some of the more “sacrilegious” passages in the original. Also appearing in Elmer Gantry are Arthur Kennedy as an H.L. Mencken-style atheistic journalist, and Edward Andrews as George Babbitt, a character borrowed from another Sinclair Lewis novel. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovimore

“A Face in the Crowd” – Andy Griffith makes a spectacular film debut in this searing drama as Lonesome Rhodes, a philosophical country-western singer discovered in a tanktown jail by radio talent scout Patricia Neal and her assistant Walter Matthau. They decide that Rhodes is worthy of a radio spot, but the unforeseen result is that the gangly, aw-shucks entertainer becomes an overnight sensation not simply on radio but, thereafter, on television. As he ascends to stardom, Rhodes attracts fans, sponsors and endorsements by the carload, and soon he is the most powerful and influential entertainer on the airwaves. Beloved by his audience, Rhodes reveals himself to his intimates as a scheming, power-hungry manipulator, with Machiavellian political aspirations. He uses everyone around him, coldly discarding anyone who might impede his climb to the top (one such victim is sexy baton-twirler Lee Remick, likewise making her film debut). Just when it seems that there’s no stopping Rhodes’ megalomania, his mentor and ex-lover Neal exposes this Idol of Millions as the rat that he is. She arranges to switch on the audio during the closing credits of Rhodes’ TV program, allowing the whole nation to hear the grinning, waving Rhodes characterize them as “suckers” and “stupid idiots.” Instantly, Rhodes’ popularity rating plummets to zero. As he drunkenly wanders around his penthouse apartment, still not fully comprehending what has happened to him, Rhodes is deserted by the very associates who, hours earlier, were willing to ask “how high?” when he yelled “jump”. Written by Budd Schulberg, Face in the Crowd was not a success, possibly because it hit so close to home with idol-worshipping TV fans. Its reputation has grown in the intervening years, not only because of its value as a film but because of the novelty of seeing the traditionally easygoing Andy Griffith as so vicious and manipulative a character as Lonesome Rhodes.

Regardless of what some of the remaining “#NeverTrumpers” believe, I am still a Christian American Conservative.

However, among the gifts which God has graciously given me, is the gift of discernment.

When something “just doesn’t seem right”, that still small voice cause my ears to perk up, like a dog smelling bacon frying in the kitchen.

My time as a Collegiate Radio News Director from 1978-1980, along with my journalism courses, taught me how to perform reseach and get to the bottom of an event or a situation, which has piqued my attention.

And, to top all of that, to risk being rude, that before-mentioned gift, has also allowed me to recognize a bunch of BS when I hear it or read it.

These things have led me to discern that Glenn Beck has become crazier than an Outhouse Rat. (That’s a Southern Colloquialism for meshuga, y’all.)

I can remember when The Glenn Beck Program first came on in the Memphis Radio Market.

I remember thinking, “Hey, this fellow’s pretty sharp. He’s entertaining and he makes some excellent political points.”

Through the era of the TEA Party and the 2008 elections, Beck became a TEA Party Darling, standing in solidarity with those Americans, who were “Taxed Enough Already”.

But then…things slowly started to change.

Imperceptible at first, Beck slowly, over a span of years, changed from being an analyzer of the news, to a maker of it. He changed from being a commentator to being a self-appointed prophet.

Now, in the aftermath of  Donald J. Trump becoming the Republican Presidential Candidate, Beck, whose severe case of Trump Derangement Syndrome, has made his once-entertaining radio program unlistenable, has now turned into an Old Testament Prophet, shaming those Christians who may even be thinking about voting for Trump.

I do believe that Beck’s Holy Garments have ridden up into a dark and lonely place.

Once one of my favorite radio show hosts to listen to, Beck has, in the last couple of years, become unlistenable.

The times that I have tuned in, during the course of the Republican Primaries, is sounded like Beck was possessed with the spirit of the late, great Ricardo Montalban, in his scene-stealing role as Khan in “Star Trek II”. I fully expect to hear him say at one point:

[quoting from Melville’s Moby Dick] To the last, I will grapple with thee… from Hell’s heart, I stab at thee! For hate’s sake, I spit my last breath at thee!

Holding one’s breath until they turn blue, or telling a Christian American Conservative that they are somehow condemned to Hell and are Unpatriotic, for voting for and supporting Donald J. Trump in his quest to become the next President of the United States of America, is not going to change the reality of the situation.

Neither will staying at home and not voting this November.

That’s been tried before.

That is how we got stuck with Petulant President Pantywaist.

That is the cold, stark reality that finally hit Conservative Talk Show Host and Constitutional Lawyer Mark Levin square between the eyes.

Not voting for Trump IS a vote for Hillary. PERIOD.

Quite frankly…

If you hate Donald J. Trump so much, that you are willing to sacrifice America’s Future to get your “revenge”, seek professional help.

Or…change your last name to Khan…or Ahab.

The Petulant President’s Pathetic Patent Office Ploy

Redskins1In the middle of both his Domestic and Foreign Policies swirling down the ol’ porcelain receptacle, President Barack Hussein Obama, through his Commerce Secretary , Penny Pritzker, instructed the United States Patent Office, under the leadership of Director Michelle Lee ( the Former Google.com Executive, (not the wonderful multi-talented actress), to pull the trademark rights of the Washington Redskins.

The 99-page decision by the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board claims that the team’s name and logo are disparaging. It dilutes the Redskins’ legal protection against infringement and hinders the team’s ability to block counterfeit merchandise from entering the country.

During an interview conducted the first week of October, Obama remarked.

If I were the owner of the team and I knew that there was a name of my team — even if it had a storied history — that was offending a sizeable group of people, I’d think about changing it.

This petulant act was no doubt, triggered by a letter which Redskins President, Bruce Allen, sent to Democrat Senate Majority Leader, Harry Reid, who has been leading the stupid campaign to force the ‘Skins to change their time-honored name for the sake of Political Correctness, on behalf of the Obama Administration and the rest of “the smartest people in the room”.

The Washington Times reported in May, that the letter told Dinghy Harry that

… his efforts to orchestrate a campaign to force a team name change were misguided and failed to recognize the name’s “deep and personal meaning.”

“I hope you will attend one of our home games, where you would witness first-hand that the Washington Redskins are a positive, unifying force for our community in a city and region that is divided on so many levels,” team President Bruce Allen wrote Mr. Reid.

The letter offered several rebuttals to arguments that Mr. Reid and other Democratic senators made in a letter earlier this week asking the NFL to force the team to change its name because they considered it racially offensive.

Mr. Allen argued the Redskins‘ name “originated as a Native American expression of solidarity” and that the team logo was designed by Native Americans in 1971.

He also noted that 90 percent of Americans in one poll didn’t find the team name offensive, and that an Associated Press survey earlier this year found 83 percent of Americans supported keeping the team name.

“What policy or issue generates 83 percent to 90 percent support is this era of negativity and division?” he asked.

The team also played up its recent charitable efforts through a new foundation that in just two months has funded 40 projects to help Native Americans. “It is our mission to help tackle the troubling realities facing so many tribes across our country,” Mr. Allen wrote.

Rightscoop.com reports that Constitutional Lawyer and Conservative Radio Talk Show Hose Mark Levin wants to correct all the misconceptions, concerning the Patent Office’s action:

Levin argues that despite the Obama administration ruling, the Redskins still own their name and logo and still own the use of their name and logo because of Common Law. And if you try and use their name and logo, Levin says the Redskins will sue you and will win because there is not a court in the land that won’t uphold Common Law.

An AP-Gfk Poll was conducted from April 11-April 15, 2014. Of  1,004 adults, 79% favored keeping the name, 11% think it should be changed, while 8% weren’t sure and 2% didn’t answer.

So, why is Obama and his Administration going through with this Quixotic Quest now,while even his old buddy, NBC’s Chuck Todd, said yesterday that the “Obama Presidency is over”?

Rush Limbaugh explained the Administration’s reason for Stripping the trademark rights from the Redskins:

This is an abject, total power play. This is the administration illustrating what it can do. It simply… Look, Snyder [the Team Owner] does not donate to Democrat causes. He might a little to even it out, but Snyder is known, if anything, as a Republican, and he does position himself very stubbornly. “I’m never changing this name,” he said. “Never.” Well, you don’t tell a tyrant “never.” You don’t tell a statist or an authoritarian “never.”

You don’t tell somebody who thinks he has all the power over everybody “never.” So I think this is somewhat personal now, because the end result of this action puts the name “Redskins” everywhere, and you would think that’s not what they want. If you really buy into what they’re doing, you would think they want to wipe out the name so it’s not used by anybody, but this action would result in it everywhere.

So this is nothing more than a classic illustration of who this administration really is. They’ve targeted an enemy and it happens to be Dan Snyder, and maybe secondarily the NFL. But it’s Dan Snyder they’re gunning for here, and they’re not gonna stop. The Regime is not gonna stop until they make him change that name. It’s just flexing of the muscle. This is just pure, raw power on display.

On April 9th, in a post titled “The New Fascism”, I wrote

Ladies and gentlemen, I firmly believe that America is now fighting a new war against fascism.

It’s not a war that is being fought with guns and bullets, But instead with state referendums, Congressional votes, executive orders, and judicial activism.

And, it’s not our best and brightest who are dying on this field of battle, but rather, it is our Constitutional Freedoms which are dying an ignoble death, pierced by the arrows of socialism and political correctness.

By now, there’s some out there in the audience saying, “Oh Lord, the crazy old cracker’s overreacting again.”

No, Skippy, I’m not.

And, Lord, I hate it when I’m right.

Until He Comes,

KJ

 

Condi Rice for VP? Yes or No?

So…word came out yesterday that eventual Republican Nominee Mitt Romney was considering Former Secretary of State Condaleeza Rice as his Vice-Presidential running mate.

Beltway Darling Peggy Noonan thinks the idea is absolutely faaabulous:

Speaking the other day to a gathering of businesspeople from across the country, I mentioned the subdued nature of the election and my thoughts as to its reasons. I was surprised to get no push-back afterward, even from political enthusiasts, only agreement.

But the news: When conversation turned to the vice presidential nominee, I said we all know the names of those being considered, spoke of a few, and then said Condoleezza Rice might be a brilliant choice.

Here spontaneous applause burst forth.

Consider: A public figure of obvious and nameable accomplishment whose attainments can’t be taken away from her. Washington experience—she wouldn’t be learning on the job. Never run for office but no political novice. An academic, but not ethereal or abstract. A woman in a year when Republicans aren’t supposed to choose a woman because of what is now called the 2008 experience—so the choice would have a certain boldness. A black woman in a campaign that always threatens to take on a painful racial overlay. A foreign-policy professional acquainted with everyone who’s reigned or been rising the past 20 years.

I should add here the look on the faces of the people who were applauding. They looked surprised by their own passion. Actually they looked relieved, like a campaign was going on and big things might happen and maybe it could get kind of . . . exciting.

Just remember…in 2008, Peggy Noonan endorsed Barack Hussein Obama.

Rush Limbaugh had a unique take on it:

So today Romney goes to the NAALCP convention. One of the names that is also on this list that shows up now and then but not in every story about it, is Condoleezza Rice. Now, I don’t have any idea who Romney’s gonna choose, but when I saw this story yesterday, “Romney May Name Running Mate Early in Election Race,” I thought, “Why?”

This is awful early to name a VP.

Of course, the Reuters headline says “may name.” But it’s a fairly lengthy story about what the advantages in doing so could be, and they list the people that are possible. It mentions here, “Romney is also considering whether to name a woman, his wife, Ann, said.” To the team of people that would select a running mate. And I’ve seen Condoleezza Rice’s name mentioned off and on. Here goes Romney to the NAALCP. What are the odds that he would pick Condoleezza Rice next week, coming off of this speech to the NAALCP?

(interruption)

You think zero? Why?

Of course, when Obama chose Biden, there was no criticism. He chose a lunatic. He chose a plagiarist. And now the guy, Biden, is out there telling sex jokes. Did you hear about this? I think we’ve got it in the Stack here. Biden. Who was he talking to? Was it an Hispanic group? He was talking to some group of people about how small the house was where he grew up and how thin the walls were and how his parents managed to “get away with it” nevertheless.

I kid you not. (laughing) Honestly! It was La Raza. Biden was talking to La Raza. He said (paraphrased), “We had all the ingredients: Small room, thin walls. You know, just like you.” We do have the sound bite. Somebody tell me what number it is. I know it’s there. Yeah, number eleven. Here it is. This is yesterday Las Vegas at the National Council of La Raza Luncheon.

BIDEN: I was raised in a… No Horatio Alger story, a normal story. A three-bedroom house, split level, in a new development, in the mid-fifties in Delaware. Those walls were awful thin. I wonder how the hell my parents did it, but that’s a different story.

AUDIENCE: (laughter)

BIDEN: I know you don’t know anything about that!

AUDIENCE: (laughter)

BIDEN: I know none of you in your families have done the same thing!

RUSH: So here he is talking to the Hispanics saying (paraphrased), “Look, I grew up just like you did: A whole bunch of people in a cheap house with thin walls, and I don’t know how my parents did it. I know none of you in your families have done the same thing.” He’s trying to share a commonality with ’em. (interruption) Snerdley, a lot of people think about their parents doing it, and they can’t visualize it. But nobody talks about it! Certainly not vice presidents!

They don’t go to groups, particularly La Raza, and say, “Yeah, yeah, yeah! Remember the car you came here in? Well, it’s like the house you lived in. Well, it was the same for me, and I tell you: All of us were packed in there like sardines and the walls were very thin, and I don’t know how my parents got away with it!” You know, if Romney chooses Condoleezza Rice, we’re not gonna get anything like that from her as vice president. I was at the Horatio Alger dinner where she was inducted into the society a couple years ago.

Tuesday morning, Condi was on CBS This Morning, where she said:

“I didn’t run for student council president. I don’t see myself in any way in elective office,” Rice told “CBS This Morning” on Tuesday.

The former Secretary of State said the Republican candidate had a “deep bench” of more willing candidates to choose from.

“I’m saying there is no way I will do this, because it’s really not me, I know my strengths. Gov. Romney needs to find someone who wants to run with him,” Rice said. “There are many people who will do it very, very well, and I’ll support the ticket.”

When “CBS This Morning” host Charlie Rose pressed Rice, noting she hadn’t technically said she wouldn’t accept the offer to be vice president, she was more definitive.

“It’s not going to happen — and no,” she said.

I’m going to wrap up today’s post with a quote from “The Great One”, Conservative Talk Show Host Mark Levin.  He said it better than I can:

I’ve been thinking during the break because this story broke on my watch — can you imagine? This is actually bad politics not only will Romney be defending Bain right up through the election now he’s going have to be defending Bush and Bush’s policies right up through the election. This is a bad idea. No offense, Condi Rice.

Didn’t they say throughout the Republican primary we had a nominee Romney because he’s the only one who could win? Why am I the only one remembers that?

And these polls, don’t they make you nervous right now? The economy’s on its back. Romney’s running against a true loser who has nothing to offer the country, literally nothing. So he’s a propagandist. So far the Romney team has not been able to cut through it and then you get this John Sununu — who gave us Souter for all those years — walking around like he some kind of smart uncle telling us they are husbanding their resources are just waiting for the right time to unleash on Obama.

Obama’s spending the summer trying to define Romney, successful or not, and Romney’s not spending the summer trying to define Obama, which he must do. So here we are debating Bain capital. And then we’ll be debating RomneyCare. And if he does pick Rice, then will be debating the entire George W. Bush record which is exactly what the Bush people want. Well it’s not what I want.

Now pick a d!@n conservative whose managed something. He’s got a strong bench to choose from and stop playing it safe. That’s my opinion. Nothing personal. Nothing personal. But I mean we’ve got great Governors out there, who are a lot of good and who have shown a lot of courage among other people, by the way. Among others. So let’s get with it. Can’t we win this d!@n race? Can’t we act like we actually want to? Can’t we be confident in our conservatism?

I am. I have my doubts about the GOP, though.
