Trump makes lemonade out of Lemon’s stupid remarks

leave a comment »

On a scale of 1 to 10, let’s give Don Lemon a 1 on terrible ratings and a 10 on a bad case of Trump Derangement Syndrome.

As for ratings, they dropped again in December and no one seems to care.  

A few days ago, Lemon’s TDS was out in the open again.  He mocked President Trump and his voters.  He laughed when the guests called us ignorant and everything else in the book.

Why did he do it?  My guess is that he can’t control himself.  They can’t speak two words without attacking or mocking President Trump or his voters.  It’s mental!

Does Mr. Lemon understand that he is helping President Trump?  In fact, he is, as we see in this post from Katherine Timpf:   

By Tuesday night, Lemon was receiving considerable backlash over the clip — prompting him to address the controversy on his show:

Ask anyone who knows me, they’ll tell you — I don’t believe in belittling people, belittling anyone for who they are, what they believe. During an interview on Saturday night, one of my guests said something that made me laugh. And while in the moment, I found that joke humorous. And I didn’t catch everything that was said.

“Just to make it perfectly clear,” he added. “I was laughing at the joke and not at any group of people.”

That’s cute, Don, and also very dishonest!  Of course, he was laughing at the joke but the joke about the stupid people who voted for Trump.  

Like many of you, I get frustrated when we give people like Don Lemon so much attention.  He has very little influence and his guest list confirms it.  In other words, you are really struggling for seriousness when you invite guests known only to the host.  What serious conservative goes on that show?  Why waste your time?

As for CNN, I don’t know who is selling advertising over there but a network drawing little audience would be better served not going out of its way to mock 63 million Americans.

Texas not ready for blue

leave a comment »

Over the last month, we’ve been hearing about a special election for the Texas House.  The opening was created when the GOP incumbent resigned.

We saw something very familiar to 2018, with Beto O’Rourke and Julian Castro openly campaigning for the Democrat.  Money was also flowing from everywhere to fund the Democrat opponent.

It seemed a lot like 2018 except the results.  In other words, the GOP won by 18 points.  

This is from the Houston Chronicle:   

Republicans won handily a closely watched special election Tuesday to keep hold of a suburban Houston district that President Donald Trump won easily four years ago, fending off a national blitz by Democrats in a Texas legislative race.

The victory by Republican Gary Gates, who put more than $1.5 million of his own money into his run for state House District 28, is sure to bring a sigh of relief for the GOP in a race that was being tracked far beyond Texas. By the final weeks, the race had escalated into the first big special election of 2020.    

In final unofficial results, Gates polled 58% of the vote to 42% for Democrat Eliz Markowitz.

So what happened?

First of all, it is a GOP district, but it was targeted by Democrats like never before.  In this sense, the race was reminiscent of the Cruz-O’Rourke campaign, when the Democrats threw millions of dollars at the state.

Second, the GOP turnout was huge.    

To be fair, special elections tend to be blown out of proportion.  However, this one was heralded as the first election of 2020.  If so, President Trump’s prospects look pretty good.

The NEA goes all in on abortion

leave a comment »

What does supporting abortion rights have to do good schools or teachers?  The answer is nothing, except if you agree that the NEA is no more than a cash register for the Democrat Party.

The NEA announced this:  

The National Education Association approved a new “business item” expressing support for abortion access during its annual conference in Houston.

“[T]he NEA will include an assertion of our defense of a person’s right to control their own body, especially for women, youth, and sexually marginalized people,” the resolution states. “The NEA vigorously opposes all attacks on the right to choose and stands on the fundamental right to abortion under Roe v. Wade.”

The NEA is the largest teachers’ union in the U.S. with more than 3 million members. It collected nearly $400 million from American educators in 2018, according to federal labor filings. The union is also one of the most politically active in the country, spending $70 million on politics and lobbying in 2017 and 2018. 

Nearly all of the union’s political action committee spending went to Democrats during the midterm cycle, according to the Center for Responsive Politics.

Again, this is a union interested in promoting the modern Democrat Party rather than the education of kids.  It opposes reforms, such as school choice, and supports reproductive rights, a fancy way of saying “abortion.”

Moral of the story:  The bureaucrats running our schools are committed left-wing activists.  Therefore, don’t be surprised if more families take their kids out of public schools and “home-school” them.
