Want a Laugh?

It’s hard for liberals to laugh. They are too busy scolding and virtue signaling. They don’t have time for humor – unless it is making fun of Republicans. They aren’t even good at it. Look at all the attacks on Trump. Is any of it funny? Has any of it hit the mark?

If you doubt it, go look at Wanda Sykes or Michelle Wolfe. Both tried at the White House Correspondents Dinner and they bombed. Wolfe even lost her Netflix show afterwards.

I enjoy Greg Gutfeld’s Saturday night Fox show. Sometimes it misses the mark, but often it is spot on and hilarious.

Online, there is another funny conservative site. It’s called The Babylon Bee. They describe themselves as a Christian news satire. Check it out. Here are a few samples:

“Caravan Of Unborn Babies Heads Toward Alabama To Apply For Asylum”

U.S.—According to sources all across the country, a caravan of unborn babies has formed to head toward Alabama in an attempt to avoid the rest of the country’s barbaric abortion laws.

The unborn humans, mostly residing in the wombs of pro-choice mothers, learned of the new law as their moms watched CNN and listened to NPR. Each of them would then sneak out of their mom’s womb in the middle of the night, slip into a state-of-the-art artificial womb they ordered on Amazon, steal their mother’s car, and make a break for the Alabama border.

“All we want is a chance to live the American Dream—or really, just live, to be honest,” a spokesfetus said. “Since the rest of the nation is one of the deadliest places to be in the whole world when you’re an unborn child, we were forced to come here for the future of our children, so we might live.”

“Honestly, as unborn children, it’s safer in a third-world country like Venezuela than here.”

Liberals quickly criticized the caravan, claiming they were “not people” but “animals.”

“Alabama Girl Crushed As Mother Explains She May Never Have Opportunity To Kill Offspring”

TUSCALOOSA, AL—Seven-year-old Gloria Hutchins was taken aside by her mother today and informed that thanks to new abortion laws, she may never enjoy the opportunity to kill her offspring. The two shared tears as Hutchin’s mother, Heather, explained how, back in the good old days, if she decided she wanted to have sex without any discrepancy or thought, that was totally fine because she could always just end the life she had created.
Red Bull Magazine Honorees Explain: What Makes A Hero?

Gloria choked back tears as she learned she would have to conduct herself with some degree of discernment in who she chose as a romantic partner, and what kind of boundaries they would set. Both lamented as they realized there could come some horrible nightmare of a day when little Gloria, all grown up, would be forced to give birth to an unwanted child and put it up for adoption instead of enjoying the freedom to just end it.

Gloria’s mother went on to tell her about how great it had been in her time, and all the siblings she would have had, and Gloria thanked her for killing them. Then Gloria wept more as the realization set in that the one hope and dream she had for this life—to murder her offspring—had been ripped from her hands.

Who Is Bazelon?

The author of the book “Charged” lambasting DA Amy Weirich has this description:

“Emily Bazelon is a staff writer for The New York Times Magazine and the Truman Capote Fellow for Creative Writing and Law at Yale Law School. She is the bestselling author of Sticks and Stones: Defeating the Culture of Bullying and Rediscovering the Power of Character and Empathy and a cohost of the Slate Political Gabfest, a popular weekly podcast. Before joining the Times Magazine, Emily was a writer and editor for nine years at Slate, where she cofounded the women’s section, “DoubleX.” She is a graduate of Yale College and Yale Law School. She lives in New Haven with her husband and her younger son.”

Yes, she has all the liberal credentials.

She writes on topics like voting rights, Gitmo detainees and due process plus the “alleged” post abortion syndrome. She spews this stuff at The Atlantic, Mother Jones, The Washington Post, Boston Globe and New Republic.

She comes from a lawyer family and even boasts feminist Betty Friedan as a cousin.

Oh, and she even has made eight appearances on The Colbert Report on Comedy Central.

You get the picture.

I was interested to see on her Twitter page that yesterday she even posted this:

That was fast, wasn’t it?

Wonder if this hit was coordinated?

Prez Agrees With Me

Not too long ago, I commented that Mayor Pete Buttigieg reminded me of Mad Magazine’s Alfred E. Neuman.

Looks like President Trump sees that similarity, too.

Politico asked President Trump on the phone for his Mayor Pete. He replied, …“Alfred E. Neuman cannot become president of the United States.”

Here’s someone’s photo shopped picture of the candidate.

The resemblance is uncanny. His ideas are probably just as mad as this character. Now he’s been branded forever.

Buttigieg answered that “I had to Google that..I guess it’s a generational thing.” Maybe, but enough voters remember to stick that picture in their minds.

The Shiny New Candidate

Sorry, but every time I see this guy

I see this guy

The 37 year old Mayor Pete Buttigieg is someone I just can’t take seriously.

I know he went to Harvard, was a Rhodes Scholar and served in Afghanistan, but those are more detrimental to him than beneficial today. Clinton and Obama both went to Harvard and Yale (but missed military service) but so what? They were horrible presidents with little knowledge of the world outside of politics.

Same with this guy.

The fact that he’s gay – which he never fails to ram home to us – may get him primary votes from those who like to shock normal Americans, but it will also turn off many. The black vote in particular is said to be more anti gay than the majority population. This is a constituency the Dems must have.

So maybe he’s shooting for the vice president slot.

Has anyone considered his background seriously? Dad was a professor at Notre Dame who was a proponent of Marxism and Communism. Not just a fringe guy; Dad pushed it hard and it rubbed off on his son. Notice how the media overlooks this bit of information?

They tend to skip over his record as mayor of South Bend. His stewardship appears to have been both bad for crime and bad for jobs.
Here’s a report from Front Page:

On March 31, a South Bend grandma brought her grandson to the hospital. The 11-month-old baby boy had been shot. His grandmother’s car had also taken fire. It was another early morning in South Bend.

Around the same time, Mayor Buttigieg, was toting up the $7 million in donations from his charm offensive as his bid for the 2020 Democrat nomination got underway. The national media never bothered reporting the shooting of an 11-month-old boy in the city he was supposed to be running, but instead confined its coverage of South Bend matters to a publicity stunt wedding officiated by Buttigieg.

The horrifying shooting of an 11-month-old boy on the millennial mayor’s watch was not an unusual incident. In the last few days, even as the media was gushing over Buttigieg’s presidential ambitions, two Indiana University South Bend players were injured in a shooting on Notre Dame Avenue, a blind date ended in a shooting, and yet another shooting added to the bloody toll in the real South Bend.

Those are quite a few shootings for a city of barely 100,000 people. But South Bend is a violent place.

While Chicago is notorious for its murder rate, in 2015, Buttigieg’s South Bend actually topped Chicago’s 16.4 homicides per 100,000 people with a homicide rate of 16.79 per 100,000 people. Those numbers put Mayor Pete Buttigieg’s city on the list of the top 30 murder capitals in the country for the year.

In January, three shootings in one week killed two teens and left a woman paralyzed from the waist down. In one summer week, the casualties included a 12 and a 13-year-old. Last year, a man shot 6 people when he opened fire on 50 partygoers in a house and was sentenced to 100 years in jail.

By 2017, shootings had risen 20% on Mayor Buttigieg’s watch. Rapes increased 27% and aggravated assaults rose from 183 in 2013, the year before Buttigieg took office, to a stunning 563 assaults.

It’s hard to know which are flying faster, bullets in South Bend or dollars into Buttigieg’s campaign.
Mayor Buttigieg excels at buzzwords and gimmicks. He’s just terrible at actually running a city.

That’s why property crime in South Bend is rising. It’s why the city is overrun with gangs. It’s why South Bend is poor, blighted and miserable. Violence is just one of the many symptoms of Buttigieg’s failures.

South Bend’s top employers are the local schools and hospitals, and the local government. And a local casino. Unemployment and taxes are higher than average. Meanwhile the average income is below $20,000. The poverty rate is 25%. African-American poverty rates are double. Hispanic poverty rates are 10% higher than the national average. And even Asian-Americans are poorer than usual in South Bend.

Buttigieg’s failed city is a tragic counterpart to Lake Wobegon where everything is below average.

The media has ignored the reality in South Bend while touting Buttigieg as a rival for the hearts of Rust Belt voters. But Buttigieg hasn’t won by winning over traditional Rust Belt voters. South Bend’s white population has dropped steadily on his watch and the city is on track for majority minority status. The remaining white population is skewed toward a white lefty elite coming for its educational institutions.

South Bend isn’t a typical Rust Belt city. It’s a typical blue city, divided sharply between poor minorities and a leftist elite without any of the culture or tech industries that keep New York or Los Angeles going. Its traditional population has been leaving steadily and that departure only accelerated during Buttigieg’s disastrous time in office.

Much has been made of Buttigieg winning reelection by 80%. This isn’t a testament to his unique charisma. Democrats have had a lock on the mayorality in South Bend for two generations.

The media cheers that Buttigieg won 80% of the vote. It neglects to mention that it was 8,515 votes. That’s about the 8,369 votes that came in during the primaries. Buttigieg raised $337,161 dollars while his Republican opponent, Kelly Jones, had raised $584 dollars. The millennial wunderkind needed $40 bucks a vote while his unknown Republican opponent managed at around a quarter a vote.

Like South Bend’s poverty and crime statistics, these are figures that the media doesn’t report because it would reveal that their shiny new candidate is a hollow façade with nothing inside except spin.

Mayor Buttigieg isn’t winning 80% because he’s universally beloved. That percentage isn’t a testament to his popularity, but to a political system in which hardly anybody except a few lefties bothers to vote.

The truth about “Mayor Pete” is that he’s the son of a Marxist prof working in Notre Dame who used the death throes of a dying city to polish his brand and then jump into the 2020 race over dead bodies.

South Bend is a human tragedy. And while Buttigieg isn’t solely responsible for his woes, he has exploited it, instead of trying to fix it, using buzzwords and gimmicks to build a national brand.

That’s something he has in common with fellow failed hipster mayor and 2020 candidate, Cory Booker.

But Senator Booker was at least clever enough to put a little distance between his tenure in Newark and his 2020 bid. Mayor Buttigieg is betting that the national media won’t bother looking at South Bend.

So far he’s been proven right.

The media keeps touting Buttigieg’s Ivy League credentials, his identity as a gay politician, and his charm. When it mentions South Bend, it’s only to claim that he “turned it around” and that he won his last election by 80%. South Bend hasn’t been turned around. Downtown has gotten a hipster revamp, while the rest of South Bend chokes on crime, violence and misery. But Buttigieg knows that the national media will never bother doing more than reporting on new bike paths and an organic grocery.

The 11-month-old boy who came into the hospital with a wound in his shoulder won’t catch their eye. But as Mayor Buttigieg keeps raising money hand over fist, South Bend continues to bleed and die.

And Buttigieg is hoping that he can sneak into the White House before the blood gets on his hands.

Pretty damning.
Don’t forget hypocrisy, too. He likes to throw verbal bricks at Vice President Pence concerning his religious beliefs and values. But when it comes to Buttigieg, Pete says Pence should not concern himself with his beliefs and values. OK for Pete, not for Mike.

Unfortunately for the media, few listen to them anymore. People find out the truth in other ways. They can’t polish up this candidate.

A New Low for Stevie

Our Congressman, Steve Cohen, never fails to go where angels fear to tread and expose his ignorance.

To make it worse, he likes to embarrass us frequently and on national TV.

Here he equates Trump to the Notre Dame fire:

Once again, Democrats always accuse others of what they are doing themselves. Talk about taking a torch to the Constitution; Cohen wants to get rid of the electoral college, take away any restrictions on voting and redistribute wealth.

Virtue Signaling at Fox

When I found out that Notre Dame was aflame yesterday, I turned to Fox News. I, as everyone else, watched in horror. Who could watch the spire fall and not feel terrible? You didn’t have to be Catholic to be sad at the loss of great art, history and craftsmanship. It took centuries to build and hours to fall.

There was really no other place to watch the live coverage than Fox News. Fox Business did not carry it wall to wall, if you will, and One America News did not have enough people stationed there to broadcast continually. MSNBC, CNN and other network lackeys were not even a possibility.

Unfortunately it fell to Shepherd Smith to lead the coverage on Fox. Since giving up nightly newscasts, he positioned himself to be the one to swoop in whenever any disaster occurs. In the past he has shown himself to be very biased and always pushing the audience into his liberal orbit.

He didn’t fail to offend this time either.
The Gateway Pundit nailed him:

Fox News host Shepard Smith cut off a French elected official who speculated the Notre Dame fire was not an accident.

The Fox News chyron was pushing the narrative that the fire was an accident and stated that “the spire was under construction before the fire, collapse.”

“Not on my watch,” Shepard Smith said scolding Philippe Karsenty, a French elected official who questioned the “politically correct” narrative that the Notre Dame fire was an accident.

Mr. Karsenty brought up the fact that churches across France are getting desecrated and vandalized on a weekly basis — this angered Shepard Smith because how dare anyone speak the truth.

“Even the Nazis didn’t dare destroy it [Notre Dame cathedral],” Karsenty said. “And you have to know for the last year we’ve had churches desecrated each and every week all over France so of course you will hear the story of the politically correct which will tell you it is probably an accident.”

Shepard Smith immediately cut off Karsenty — “Sir. Sir! Sir! We’re not going to speculate here of the cause of something for which we don’t know.”

Shepard Smith would not let the guest speak and eventually ended the call saying, “No sir, not here, not on my watch!”

What hypocrisy! Speculation has been what Smith has been about whenever it comes to something about Donald Trump. He, like his MSNBC and CNN counterparts, has always been quick to push the Russia hoax narrative. Smith hasn’t let facts stop him there.

Why not consider the possibility of terrorism? The news media in the 1990s never did much investigation into the rise of radical Islam. They were deaf and blind to it. When 9/11 happened, most of us were completely in the dark about Al Qaeda, Bin Laden and radical Islam. The American public had not been informed about it. Who immediately thought of Al Qaeda when the towers were falling? Big media fail.

Smith was finally relieved of his constant need to prattle when Neil Cavuto came on at 3. He’s another self satisfied sanctimonious twit who foists the liberal angle on viewers in espousing anti Trump blather. So it was no surprise when he followed right behind Smith in the virtue signaling.

The Daily Caller has the encounter Cavuto had with Catholic League spokesman Bill Donahue:

“Well, Neil, if it is an accident, it’s a monumental tragedy. But forgive me for being suspicious. Just last month, a 17th-century church was set on fire in Paris. We’ve seen tabernacles knocked down, crosses have been torn down, statues, —” Donohue stated.

As Donohue mentioned, a number of churches in France have been vandalized during the early part of 2019. Vandals have smashed statues, knocked down tabernacles, burned an altar cloth, destroyed the Eucharist and smeared a cross with excrement.
“We don’t know that. So if we can avoid what your suspicions might be. I do want to look at what happened now,” Cavuto responded, cutting off his guest. “A very pricey rebuilding and renovation effort going on that involved a good deal of Catholic fundraising campaign I know in this country and abroad. This renovation was paid for up front. So, in other words, all the monies were there. Now I’m wondering how much more the Catholic Church commits to this or do you think they now first want to get to the bottom of it?”

“First, they have to get to the bottom of it and they will rebuild it. There’s no question about that. They certainly, the Catholic Church will come up for the money for it, that’s not even a question. I’m sorry. When I find out that the Eucharist is being destroyed and excrement is being smeared on crosses, —” Donohue pushed back.
“I love you, Bill, but we cannot make conjectures about this. So, thank you. Bill, I’m sorry. Thanks very much. I do want to let people know, and again we’re not trying to be rude to our guests here. There’s so much here we don’t know about what happened here.”

Did the Murdochs’ empire feel pushback from Muslims after the New York Post’s front page concerning Rep. Ilhan Omar’s thoughts about 9/11?

AOC had suggested a ban on the Post. “Ocasio-Cortez applauded the boycott initiated by the Yemeni American Merchants Association (YAMA), posting to Twitter on Saturday, ‘Two years ago, Bodega owners across NYC (& cheered by neighbors)shut their shops citywide to protest Trump’s #MuslimBan. Today, that same community is banding together to reject sales of the NY Post at bodegas citywide. This is what real unity (& NYC solidarity) looks like’.”

It doesn’t take much for media people to run. Just the thought of a boycott and an accusation of racism will do.

Sad, because there are a lot of questions to be asked in the Notre Dame fire.

Why not talk about the threats to it by Muslims?
Why ignore the spate of attacks on Catholic churches in France before this?
Why did it take so long for firefighters to get there?
Why did it start just after the cathedral closed?
Why were no workmen there and how did the fire start if they had planned to keep electrical stuff away from the wood?
These questions may be easily explained, but with the horrible reputation the media has for not investigating – and for downright lying – why should we believe them or the French government?

In our own country look at the massacre in Las Vegas. We have never received answers to who did it, what the role of the FBI was and how it happened. No one in the media has pursued it either.

That’s the sad state of affairs today. Add to it that the media and many governments want the secular world to replace all faith, just watch and this story will disappear.

If a mosque had burned; if a black church had been on fire; if a gay nightclub had been in flames, Smith & co. would have immediately started in on Islamaphobia, racism, homophobia. They would have jumped to conclusions faster than the fire spread.

It’s just when it’s Christianity – and in particular, Catholicism – it won’t be defended.

They certainly didn’t.

Soros DA Project

Mr. Reagan lays out very clearly how George Soros is trying to influence our country by inserting District Attorneys General who will promote his progressive views in jurisdictions across the land.

In this video he points out what is happening in Hinds County, home to Jackson, Mississippi.
Our own newspaper has continually railed against our own Shelby County DA Amy Weirich. That is part of the plan as you can understand in this video:

Beck Ties Border, Marxists

If you listened to Glenn Beck’s radio show yesterday, you may have heard him talk about a recent Blaze TV show that discussed immigration. Beck also appeared on Hannity’s TV show to get the message out.

He said they had done extensive research on who was behind it. He put it up for free because he feels it’s so important. Here it is:
