Liberals Bashed McCain And Dole Over Their Health, Now Hillary Is Magically Off Limits

“McCain faces questions on age, health”.  That’s a CNN headline from October of 2008 when John McCain was running for President of the United States. The article goes on to talk about McCain’s previous bout with skin cancer and criticized McCain for not releasing more medical records thus making the obvious implication he was hiding something.  As you can probably guess, the media did the same thing to Bob Dole.

That was fair game for the liberal left.  But then, something miraculous happened.  Eight years later, when the roles were reversed, the left decided that wasn’t allowed anymore.  In 2016, if you dare mention Hillary Clinton’s health, you’re a sexist.  Yes, today it is completely off limits to even mention the coughing fits, stumbles, questionable health records, concussion, and age.   McCain was 71 when he ran.  Hillary is 68 now.

You aren’t even allowed to do it if you’re a liberal.  Andrea Mitchell and Chris Matthews brought it up and both got hammered for it by their rabid followers.

Dr. Drew Pinsky , a distinguished Pasadena, CA native and board certified physician, went through Hillary’s medical records and had some troubling things to say about them. You would think that he just accused Hillary of being an alien from outer space the way the liberals reacted. You can sort through Twitter on your own but trust me, it’s nasty.

What is going on with this world?  If you need more evidence that political correctness is taking over the planet look no further than the ridiculous cries of sexism that are being hurled around in this conversation.  Glamour actually posted a story with a headline that read, “Yes, It’s Sexist To Speculate About Hillary’s Health”.

I’m sorry, what?

Is that the world we live in now?  Where the media babies women so much and treats them with so much contempt that they won’t even allow them to be questioned about potentially serious health problems? We can’t even ask the question?  She could be perfectly fine, but when we start telling the media that they can’t even ask certain questions, then what’s the point of even having a free press?

What feminists don’t seem to understand is that they are actually hurting their cause by creating this narrative that men can be criticized for anything but women are too frail or are off limits for some reason.  How does that help women?  Hillary is running to be the leader of the free world.  She can handle herself.

“Oh, but would you say the same thing to a man?” Yes, in fact, liberals in the media HAVE done it at least twice in recent memory.  So you can put that elementary school argument to rest.

It should concern everyone when we see the liberal media complex start telling us what questions we are allowed to ask and what we aren’t.

These Two Images Show Just How Dishonest The Media Coverage Of DNC CEO Resignation Was

1

We talk a lot about media bias and it is clear to any fair minded observer that the mainstream media has an incredible amount of power.

Sometimes, talking about it isn’t enough.  Sometimes, visual examples are the most compelling.

Yesterday, it was announced that the CEO of the DNC was resigning due to the disastrous email leak that exposed some serious corruption in the establishment wing of the party.

That’s a huge deal.  DNC leadership is falling apart.  Can you imagine the press coverage if this was happening at the RNC?

Check out this snapshot from the MSNBC homepage that an awesome SGR follower (Thanks Pablo!) sent us.

I barely know how the internet works let alone how to figure out how to make this image larger but if you can’t tell, the top 10 stories there on the right don’t even mention the resignation.  It’s all stories about how Obama and Hillary are great, Trump sucks and Trump is a racist blah blah blah.

Not a word about the DNC turmoil.  Or anything else for that matter.  An entire page devoted to bashing Trump.  Even liberals have to admit that’s ridiculous. Right?

Politico managed to mention it, in microscopic fashion surrounded by a million articles bashing Trump.

a

I’m not complaining about how things aren’t fair.  Everyone knows that. The media is completely in the tank for the Democrats and they probably always will be.

But, it’s important for people to be aware of the propaganda they are being fed and understand how critical it is to research things for yourself.

At this point, if you are trusting places like Politico, CNN, or MSNBC (no hyperlink needed) to get information then you need to seriously reevaluate some things in your life.

New Poll Confirms Democrats On Wrong Side Of History In Abortion Debate

1

If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a million times, Democrats are on the wrong side of history when it comes to abortion.

Anyone who pays attention to their heated rhetoric and unwavering support for dishonest organizations like Planned Parenthood is able to piece that together.

But there are still a lot of people out there that just refuse to believe that conservatives are more in line with how the country feels about abortion than Democrats.

This week, a poll was released that proves it.

From Daily Caller:

A new Marist poll of over 1,000 American adults (sampling all adults yields more liberal results than registered voters, and significantly more liberal than likely voters) finds that while 51 percent of Americans use the term “pro-choice” to describe their abortion views, that term is misleading, because 78 percent of Americans believe in substantial restrictions to abortion.

For example, Clinton and the DNC condemn Pence’s signing an Indiana law discontinuing taxpayer dollars to Planned Parenthood in the Hoosier State. But the poll shows that 62 percent of all Americans — including 44 percent of Democrats — support banning taxpayer dollars from being spent on abortion. (This law was one of the reasons Pence was praised last week in Cleveland by pro-life leaders.)

The majority of Americans don’t believe in taxpayer funds for abortion.

Yet, there Democrats are trying to overturn the Hyde Amendment and do just that.

8 in 10 Americans take abortion seriously enough to believe in some kind of restriction.

Democrats fight tooth and nail to make sure there are zero restrictions.

Clearly, the Democrats are wrong on this issue.

Nixon’s 1968 Convention Speech: A Message For 2016?

1

This afternoon, I watched Richard Nixon’s speech accepting the nomination for president at the 1968 Republican convention.  1968 was a crazy year.  One of the most fascinating classes I took in college was a class entirely devoted to the things that happened in 1968. Race relations were abysmal, the economy was stagnant, our position in the world was shaky, we were mired in an unpopular war, and crime was rapidly rising.  It was a year that isn’t very different from 2016.  Many of the issues that voters were thinking about then are similar to what people are thinking today.

It was an incredible speech from Nixon and it was impossible not to be reminded of Donald Trump at least a few times while watching it. There was something about this speech that really resonated today.  The mannerisms.  The talking points.  The vernacular.  You can make the argument it could have been delivered today.  Watch it for yourself.  It’s long, but you won’t regret it.

You can read the transcript here as well.  Can you tell I really want you to check this out?

The central themes of this speech: Law and order.  Opportunity for all Americans.  Regaining respect in the world.  Economic growth.  Fighting bloated bureaucracy.

Sure, you can make the argument that those things matter every election.  But the way in which Nixon talked about them is eerily similar to the language we hear today.  Including a couple references to the greatness of America that obviously ring a bell today.

As you know, Nixon went on to win that election.  A man from a poor family in Whittier, California who had his political career written off time after time, not unlike Trump, ended up uniting the country, winning the White House, and ending the war in Vietnam.

Say what you want about Watergate, but it looks as serious as stealing a pack of gum when you compare it to some of the shenanigans we see today.

We hear the comparisons between Trump and Reagan all the time and I don’t even really feel comfortable making a solid comparison between Trump and Nixon.  I mean, Nixon’s conservatism on its worst day is probably on the same level as Trump’s on its best.

But, watching this speech, it is impossible to ignore the way in which Nixon’s words resonated and not be reminded of how Trump’s have resonated in a very similar way over the past year or so.

You’ve heard it a million times.

Those who fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it.

Geraldo EXPLODES on Obama Over Failure to Fight Terror

rivera

Fox News host Geraldo Rivera isn’t exactly known for sharp wit and policy positions agreeable to hardcore conservatives, but it seems the man finally said something that just about everyone on the right can agree with.

During a Fox and Friends segment, Rivera ripped into President Obama and his wimpy, pathetic fight against terrorism, totally exploding into a rant of epic proportions.

Yes, this might actually make you fist pump to Geraldo.

From BizPacReview:

“We are going to send more troops to Iraw, a total of 560,” Fox News’ Steve Doocy said Friday on “Fox & Friends.” “The United Kingdom is going to send 250. Is that going to help?”

“About time,” Geraldo said. “My goodness what is this gradualism? I don’t understand how the President of the United States can watch this unfold and still believe that his thesis, his approach to fighting the caliphate, is a little here, a little there, a little more bombing.

“Because you are proud of your policy and stubbornly insisting it will work does not mean you can’t, as an intelligent, patriotic person, say it has not worked, we must wipe out the caliphate,” he said.

“Where are the first cavalry, the 82nd airborne, the 101st airborne? Where are our magnificent troops to put an end to this?” he asked.

“We are at war with an ideology that is more than an ideology,” he said. “It is a geographic entity. We know where it is. I can show you on the map where it is.”

“It is time for the President of the United States to go beyond,” he said. “I don’t want him to console us now. I want him to be firm — I want him to announce and escalation, a major escalation, if not a declaration of war against ISIS — When ISIS cut the heads off those journalists and drowned that pilot it was time then, it’s time now!”

“I believe the first step is a military step,” he continued. “I don’t want to be calmed now. I want a military solution to what is essentially a military problem.”

It’s hard to believe these words are about to come out of my mouth, but I 100 percent agree with Geraldo Rivera.

Wow. I didn’t think I’d feel so dirty after uttering that sentence, but I feel like curling up in the fetal position in the shower and crying for the next hour.

Anyway, it truly is time to drop the political correctness junk and take legitimate military action to dismantle groups like ISIS in order to bring their worldwide reign of terror to an end.

Radical Islamists do not negotiate. The only language they speak fluently is blunt force, and I think it’s time we started learning that language ourselves so we can deliver them a nice little love letter in the form of a boot to the backside.

CBO Issues Sobering Warning About National Debt, On Track To Hit 141% Of GDP

1

The national debt isn’t a sexy topic but it is arguably the most important issue facing the country today.

Liberals seem to think that we are impervious to the fate of all the European countries who have taxed themselves into oblivion, exploded the debt, and allowed way too many people to become dependent on the government.

We aren’t.

The national debt is rapidly approaching $20 trillion and there is absolutely no reason to believe it will slow down anytime soon.

President Obama likes to fashion himself as a financially responsible guy.  Remember when he called George W. Bush unpatriotic for adding so much to the national debt?

That’s the same guy that thought it would be fun to add more to the national debt than any president in American history. Combined.

The result of that?  A complete mess.  And if we don’t get serious about it soon, the debt is on track to make up 141% of our GDP.

For the people out there that aren’t great with numbers…that means America goes bye bye.

From Breitbart:

The non-partisan Congressional Budget Office (CBO) warns this week that U.S. debt will hit 141 percent of GDP in the next 30 years as America taxes itself into poverty.

With a new University of Chicago poll revealing that Democrat Hillary Clinton’s lead over Republican Donald Trump in the key 18-to-30-year-old demographic is only 38 percent to 17 percent, with 45 percent undecided, Clinton was forced to adopt Bernie Sanders’s free-spending agenda of 1) free in-state public college tuition for families making up to $125,000 a year; 2) gradually raising the minimum wage to $15 an hour, and 3) beginning “Medicare for all” by allowing 55-and-older residents to buy Medicare coverage.

The CBO has warned in the past that irresponsible federal spending has deteriorated the long-term fiscal solvency of the United States, but the latest CBO report predicts that the net federal debt’s share of the overall economy will steadily rise from “75 percent of GDP in the wake of the financial crisis, to 86 percent in 2026 and 141 percent in 2046.” CBO goes on to point out that such a radio would far exceed the historic peak of 106 percent of GDP at the end of World War II.

Obviously, that’s very bad.

But of course, that’s not President Obama’s fault.

It’s the fault of the guy who was president 8 years ago.  Or something…

Several Black Lives Matter Supporters Are Calling For The Disbanding Of Police Departments

1

The conversation surrounding the legitimacy and morality of the Black Lives Matter movement has been a hot button issue over the past few weeks.

I’m not one of those people that says the entire movement is a terrorist organization and I’m also not one of the delusional people who pretends the violent rhetoric from some members of BLM isn’t directly responsible for some of the cop murders we have seen over the past year.

There is no doubt that a radical element has taken control of this movement.  There are some supremely unintelligent and irresponsible things being said by prominent members of Black Lives Matter and it is extremely disheartening to see those statements not receive strong condemnation.

“What do we want? Dead cops”

“Pigs in a blanket, fry em like bacon”

You’re going to tell me with a straight face there is no connection between those BLM comments and the tragic murders in Dallas?

One of the statements that has been flying around lately, and I’ve seen it in several different places, is that the police force should be disbanded.

Twice as many white people are killed by the police each year than black people and the number of people killed is infinitesimally small when compared to the number of police interactions that take place each day but yet, the police need to be disbanded because of the controversial killings of the past year?

Seriously, members of the BLM movement are urging us to get rid of cops and turn things over to “community policing”.

Here’s just a little taste.

From Mediaite:

Black Lives Matter Minneapolis announced in a Facebook post that they were acting to draw attention to the shooting death of Philando Castile at the hands of a Minnesota police officer, the aftermath of which was caught on camera. “The coalition condemns this violence and believes this shut down reinforces our belief that comfort and business as usual must be disrupted until substantive changes occur in our city and throughout the country,” the post reads.

“This group demands the dismantling of the police department, which includes disarming, defunding, demilitarizing, and disbanding police,” the post continues. “We believe that security for all of us does not lie in use of aggression and force.”

From The Blaze:

Breanna Champion, the co-chair of Black Youth Project 100, shared her demand while also echoing thecall from many protesters that Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel resign his post.

“So getting Mayor Rahm Emanuel to resign is definitely not the main goal of the movement right now,” Champion said. “In Chicago, police receive 40 percent of our city’s budget to remain operational — that is completely unheard of and unacceptable.”

The activist went on to make this demand: “One of our major demands is that police be defunded and that money, used to fund police, be used to fund black futures and be used to fund our communities and things that we need.”

There’s more where that came from.

As troubling as this is, I simply refuse to believe that this sentiment is shared by more than 1% of people in this movement.  It just can’t be. Right?

However, this violent and reckless rhetoric coming from this movement is absolutely influencing people to target police officers.

Dallas was a prime example of that but there have been other examples of police targeting under the banner of Black Lives Matter as well.  The two NYPD cops that were ambushed immediately come to mind.  This kind of rhetoric is not only dumb, but it contributes to this made up belief that the police force as a whole can’t be trusted to do its job.  It also makes absolutely no sense.  Typically, it is a good idea not to give nuts like this any attention but at the same time it is important to understand that dangerous beliefs like this are out there.

Remember how during the Dallas shooting we saw police officers running towards the shooter and running towards the people protesting against them in order to protect them?

Who does that if this insane plan of getting rid of cops is successful?

The bottom line here is that race relations in America are not going well and things aren’t going to get any better as long as Democrats are in charge fanning the flames to mobilize voters against a common enemy. In this case, that enemy is the police.
