Blame it on Nancy

leave a comment »

The Democrats are in panic mode, as we read in various news stories about concerns over the Sanders candidacy’s effect down ballot.   

When is someone on the other side going to pin the Sanders’ candidacy on Nancy Pelosi?  She is responsible for this.  It was her weakness as a leader that led the left in the House to take over the party.   

Blame it on Nancy.  She made this nightmare scenario possible, as we see in this editorial:     

After her stunning victory in 2018, Pelosi seemed to be keeping her party on the right path, avoiding capitulation to the far Left. 

She resisted an ill-founded impeachment effort as long as she felt she could. 

She fought against attempts by the far-left “Squad” to usurp her speakership, even disparaging their “Green Dream, or whatever they call it.” 

And then Speaker Pelosi lost control of the class, as they say in school.   She cracked on impeachment.  She refused to sit down with President Trump, govern, and put some trophies on the wall for those moderates who made her speaker.  She pleased the left by just attacking President Trump over this and that.

And now she is going to see her majority go down the tubes!

What if Pelosi had stood up to this leftist crowd a year ago and told Sanders that he is not a Democrat?  They’d be in better shape today, to say the least.

Chris Wallace is right about Jim Acosta

leave a comment »

The Jim Acosta Show traveled to India this week.  
As usual, the man goes out of his way to be obnoxious and please the one million viewers per hour who watch CNN.  
Acosta’s style is getting on Chris Wallace’s nerves, as he said this week:   
“I was horrified by [Acosta],” Wallace said at a Columbia University event in New York City hosted by the Common Ground Committee on Tuesday night. 
“It’s not our job to get in fights with presidents. It’s not our job to one-up presidents. It’s our job to report on presidents.”
“But to the degree we have responded to his attacks on us with attacks or advocacy in kind, there’s a huge mistake, and I think adds to people questioning the credibility of the media,” the “Fox News Sunday” host said.
Acosta told Trump during a press conference in New Delhi that CNN’s “record on delivering the truth is a lot better” than his “sometimes” after the president broached the topic of a recent report on Russia’s election interference that CNN later walked back.
“I worry that the president’s attacks have given too many straight news reporters — not talking about the opinion page or prime time — an excuse or license to cross the line themselves and become players on the field, and I think that is a huge mistake,” Wallace said. 
“It’s not our role. Our role is to be observers, umpires, fact-checkers, investigators — it’s not to be advocates. It’s not to be opponents.”
Chris Wallace is correct.  I hope that Mr. Wallace understands that Acosta’s act is totally premeditated.
In other words, CNN knows that their shrinking audience wants a reporter who fights Trump.  
Should The White House remove his credentials?  No they should not.  President Trump does a great job of making a fool out of Acosta.

Video of the year: Arielle Scarcella took a raft to freedom

leave a comment »

Over the last months, we’ve posted often about the insanity in the left, from arguing about the number of genders to Trump Derangement Syndrome.

A few days ago, I found this on YouTube.

Like a person escaping an authoritarian regime, Arielle Scarcella built a raft and headed out.  Arielle is not some traditional girl who opposes abortion and believes that marriage is between a man and a woman.  She is as “woke” as they come, or at least she used to be.

This is her video…click to watch!

Arielle objects to much of what she sees, such as arguing about 97 genders, accusations of bigotry if you disagree, and “child drag queens.”

Maybe Arielle is just a publicity-seeker or perhaps a sign of things to come. 

My hope is that some people on her side watch her video and examine the insanity of their movement.
