Savage Attack on The Left from its Ally

Stalwart Hillary supporter tripped up

The lamestream media told you:

They actually gave you the whole story, but with their spin, and context, most folks probably missed the gist.

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

A deep and insightful description of what's happening to the masses on the left ran front and center recently across most "news" media:

"Many feel left behind, left out, looked down on. Their anger and alienation has proved a fertile ground for false promises and false information. Their economic problems and cultural anxiety must be addressed or they will continue to sign up to be foot soldiers in the ongoing conflict between 'us and them'," this insightful critic observed.

"In the years to come there will be trolls galore, online and in person, eager to tell you that you don't have anything worthwhile to say or anything meaningful to contribute."

The blunt democrat critic said democrats have been flinging charges at the Trump administration, which are concocted and lack factual support. The speaker warned of "an all-out assault on truth" which is "necessary for democracy to survive."

Now, everyone awake already understands the left-wing media abandoned truth and honest reporting a long while ago.

These left-bashing statements and wake-up calls were in the speech delivered by... Hillary Rodham Clinton on May 27, 2017, who appeared unaware of the deplorable underpinning of her remarks. The media missed it too. If you didn’t know better, at times you might swear she was talking about herself and her supporters.

Ms. Rodham-Clinton spoke at the commencement at Wellesley College, an gender-segregated all-girls elite private school, which she attended in her youth. Lamestream reporters noted her prior attendance, but failed to point out that the school bans men from attending, yet has not been charged with discrimination. The all-female graduating class repeatedly cheered Rodham-Clinton's comments. The dim-light hypocrisy was almost late-night humor.

Law Firms to Gang up on Constitution

"Firearms Accountability Counsel Task Force"

$1,000/hr. lawyers will attempt to unravel Second Amendment

Joint effort to stop "gun violence"
(at the expense of rights you currently enjoy)

Old familiar left-wing gun-control dialog --
but with fresh blood, legal eagles and "novel" strategies,
the same misconceptions and prejudices,
plus tens of millions to spend (dark money?)
on "free" legal support.

Gun owners and local laws are their prime target

Stymied at federal level, they're targeting courts

The lamestream media told you:

The New York Times offered up one of its Sunday front pages and an entire back page to applaud the introduction of an army of elite law-firm lawyers, supported by fees from their clients, to do "free" work attacking the current status of the Second Amendment.

Diminishing rights Americans have didn't rise to the awareness of reporters or editors who produced the piece. They displayed instead hoplophobic blinders, obscuring their preoccupation with what they call gun violence, misdirecting attention from criminal behavior and crime.

The Times, literally gushing at the possibilities, lambasted the "gun lobby" for doing such a successful job in protecting the right to keep and bear arms at the local, state and federal legislative and judicial levels, then predicted a campaign of destruction for gun rights at the hands of the high-powered coalition of firms, allied with the usual anti-gun-rights suspects, naming many of the firms and their leaders.

Arnold & Porter, Richard M. Alexander, chairman
Brady Center to Promote Gun Violence, Avery Gardiner, chief legal officer
Brennan Center for Justice at New York University Law School, Eric M. Ruben
Covington & Burling, represented D.C. in Heller
Dentons
Everytown for Gun Safety, Michael Bloomberg, financier (did not join)
Hogan Lovells
Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence, Robyn Thomas, executive director
Mayer Brown, Counsel to Brady Center
Munger, Tolles & Olsen, Brad D. Brian, co-managing partner*
O'Melveney &Myers, represented D.C. in Heller, Charlie Lifland, Partner
Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison, Brad S. Karp, chairman
Ropes & Gray, Counsel to Brady Center
Skadden Arps, Counsel to Brady Center

Note: Mr. Brian makes a familiar "but" statement in the article, "... recognize that the Second Amendment is an important part of our Constitution... responsible gun owners... but... an epidemic of gun violence... law can save innocent lives without infringing..." Additional easily recognizable left-leaning gun-speak permeates the story.

Best result of the Georgia House seat vote

America has been spared the insufferable gloating and endless taunts we would have faced from "news" outlets had the democrat won the high-priced seat for the Georgia 6th District in Tuesday's election (June 20, 2017). Desperate for a win to prove they're correct, and Trump is a maniac, republicans are dirt and the left does not have its hair on fire, the left and its fabulously wealthy allies poured and lost tens of millions of dollars into a tiny race, a losing candidate, and a losing race in a neighborhood where they're not wanted, and they predictably lost.

Not even the fact that a woman beat a man, usually a cause for celebration for the wildly misogynistic left, could douse their burning hair, as the news channels self flagellated, placed blame, reversed all their prior hype and claimed it didn't matter, and prepared for their next whipping. The leftists "knew" their guy would win, hoped he would win, held this out as a referendum on president Trump (again), and once again got flattened (see now-famous image below), after it proved Trump is nothing like they believe. Locally, pharmacies have experienced a run on Prozac and lithium drip tubes.

CNN panel bummed out when Georgia democrat gets stomped:
 


"Referendum on Trump" proves Trump's a winner, dashing left-wing's hopes for failure.


The tens of millions of dollars weren't actually lost, you know. For the most part, TV stations, "news" media and ad agencies got the cash, to pay for mind-numbing incessant advertising, in a perverse almost criminal cycle where elections are an expensive function of people like those you see above, paid for by their friends. They may be sad, but they're rich. God bless America.

Proof of Voter Fraud?

Media inconsistent, Congress incontinent

Letter to reporter,

Rebekah,

Your well-researched article (5/1/17) on the 100,000 lost-then-found voter registrations did the math for a sampling (43 out of 74) and found the 58,000 people who may have been denied a vote. That's critically important.

The bigger controversy though, or at least equally important, is over fraudulent voting -- it's what the president raised such a fuss about. The article implies 42,000 people attempted to vote fraudulently. That math, simple addition and subtraction I believe should have been included, if not the headline. Did 42,000 people actually register to vote when they are forbidden to do so (assuming the projected math, the same used to estimate the 58K, holds)?

If yes, how about a story on that? If projected out across the country, what sort of affect would that have? If similar numbers apply (and Arizona is a small state comparatively) 42K x 50 states is 2.1 million fraudulent applications to vote. Is that even remotely possible? Why hasn't Congress actually attempted to study this? That alone is a story worth a Pulitzer. No one wants to know the real answer -- but maybe you do?

Alan.

http://www.azcentral.com/story/news/politics/elections/2017/05/02/maricopa-county-voter-registration-citizenship-adrian-fontes/308435001/

The reporter replied saying the balance of the forms aren't necessarily fraudulent, they were incomplete or hard matches, the real number is estimated now at closer to 17,000. That may be, but a) why wouldn't the anomalies have shown in the random sample, b) the accuracy arbiter is DMV and those issues are well known, c) the 17K is of eligible voters disenfranchised, an important stat but, d) the question was, are any of these overlooked applications fraudulent, or sufficient to swing an election. Her followup is quite illuminating, well written, an exploration of a slice of the voting system, and I've learned this very item is in the hands of the Trump administration.

http://www.azcentral.com/story/news/politics/elections/2017/05/04/fontes-lowers-number-potential-citizens-disenfranchised/310438001/

She notes, "However, your question is one I had as well, and I am currently digging through a sample of the applicants to see if I can determine any fraudulent ones. Stay tuned!" Yes, indeed.

P.S. There is a reference to 85 denieds out of 130 applicants sampled in a different set, where 85 were citizens, and the rest were "hard matches." Only two categories? That doesn't even pass the sniff test.

Suspicious Google Result in Georgia Vote

TOP RESULTS ALL LEFT-WING SOURCES

Their democrat spin is 100%: "We losers came so close!"

The top 10 results in a Google search for the winner of the contentious Georgia election on April 18 brought up only left-wing and alt-Left media sources.

Each of the results cast the election as “just short” and “narrowly missed” victory instead of anything suggesting Republicans defeated the democrats effort, or democrat loses. Making matters worse, the sole democrat in the race faced a divided opposition, with 11 republicans running and dividing the vote.

This poses a stinging rebuke to the supposed neutrality of the vaunted search engine. Google is known to have been built and is being run by an overwhelmingly non-diverse staff, essentially white and Asian, with liberal sensibilities, according to numerous studies, including their own.

Among those represented in the search results are (in order of appearance, excluding Twitter comments): NY Times, CNN, New Yorker, NY Times, CNN, NBC, Salon, The Guardian, electjon.com, and TalkingPointsMemo.com, a web site created by a liberal blogger, according to Wikipedia.

The run-off election is set for June 20. The New York Times, in a lengthy piece, did little more than lament the loss, praise the narrow loss, extol the virtues of the loser, point how much more he spent, slap Donal Trump several times, and almost campaign for the loser.

"Rainbow Flag" Burning Protest Planned

FLAG BURNING IS PROTECTED SPEECH

LGBT community has and flaunts rights others are denied

Phoenix, AZ -- According to a source who was present, a group of activists meeting secretly in an undisclosed location are considering staging a national demonstration protesting the fact that the LGBT community can eat where ever it wants, and even behave offensively, but people discreetly exercising the civil and human right to keep and bear arms are discriminated against and banned from restaurants as if they have no rights at all.

“This is intolerable discrimination against an entire class of decent Americans,” said a spokeswoman for the group, speaking on condition of anonymity for fear of reprisals from a group, she claimed, has demonstrated violent hatred against people who don’t agree with them. “Why is it gays and sexually orientated persons (sic) get rights other civil Americans don’t have but should? Our rights, unlike theirs, are explicit in the Constitution.”

The flag burning is designed to point out that burning the U.S. flag has been determined to be free speech, so burning other “symbols of oppression” should carry the same protection, another person familiar with meeting said. The demonstration will be announced on social media and take place at a location "that cannot be ignored," the spokeswoman said.

What Did Russia Really Do?

MEDIA CAN'T GET ELECTION FACTS STRAIGHT


Permanently bent out of shape from Hillary's loss

The lamestream media told you:

Russia hacked America's election to help Donald Trump win. We've been telling you this non-stop for six months without backup. We do not add to this line, we just keep repeating it without adding any significant illuminating detail besides conjecture that might affect your perception. Let's bring in our opinion panel. Hillary lost because Russia helped Donald Trump win. Repeat after me. We even have investigations going now.

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

Russia MAY HAVE helped another outfit (we don't know yet) release secret democrat emails that revealed Hillary and her aides were cheating to win the election. If the secret emails were not leaked, Hillary's cheating might have given her the election.

By learning of her direct cheating, American's were able to make a more informed choice, and chose to reject her corrupt attempt to get herself and her scandal-ridden husband back into the White House.

The secret emails revealed the "news" media, including CNN and others, were giving her debate questions before presidential debates. Her campaign was even suggesting debate questions to them that would make Hillary look good and hurt her opponents. That's what happened.

In addition, it was exposed by the hacking, whose actual sources have not been even partially attributed, that the democrat's party, which is supposed to neutrally act in support of its candidates, worked directly to defeat Bernie Sanders, who had a brutally real chance of defeating the baggage-laden Clinton candidate, whose leading claim to fame apparently was the fact that she wasn't a man, apparently.

Rumors of homosexual behavior on her part were never proven, and no un-retouched photographs have ever surfaced. Her husband's illicit, immoral and apparently illegal sexual behavior and deviancy is well known and documented. Aside from impeachment, he has not been charged.

Despite the "news" media's incessant harping on Russia's possible hacking as a total excuse for Hillary's failure, it's obvious if Hillary had managed to keep all her dark criminal activity secret that likely could have made a difference. Americans and the media should be thankful it all came out, instead of voting in ignorance, but reporters were rooting for one side instead of reporting. They still are.

It was the dirty work turned up and leaked about Clinton's top staffer John Podesta, the democrat's party, its disgraced former leader Debbie Wasserman Schultz and others in Hillary's campaign and around her, including sexual pervert Anthony Weiner, Hillary's top advisor Huma Abiden's husband, that brought on Hillary's defeat, among other factors. Left-wing operatives could not be reached for comment.

A Page Nine reader makes this very important point: No democrat has denied the truth of the hacked material. (-Sleuth)

Trump WINS on Obamacare



Media Gets It Wrong Again

Greatest Head Fake in a Decade




The lamestream media told you:


“GOP Concedes Defeat on Health Care Bill”!  –USA Today
“Major Defeat” –NY Times
“Trump Tastes Failure” –Reuters
“acute embarrassment” –CNN
Dems Win on Obamacare!” –Nobody.

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:


The world has now moved on, could Trump have planned it this way? Such prescience, such short public memory, could the president have done this deliberately? You remember how they attacked the president like a bunch of rabid animals.

Or was it really his Secret Plan A: Introduce a flawed complex bill on short notice, without adequate time for review, insist on rapid action, stir up frenzied opposition from your own team, on top of sound and fury from the usual suspects, watch the bill sink, just walk away, problem solved. Yes, solved.

The stickiest, ugliest partisan agenda item in Congress has evaporated. Obamacare remains standing, unscathed. Democrats win, their signature achievement untouched! Now, masterfully, when Obama’s hallmark collapses because it’s everything the Dems won’t admit and experts can’t escape, who gets blamed? Even the alt-left media can’t pin this on the current administration. It’s holy OBAMAcare, Batman.

The Facts

Health insurance isn’t health care. Neither one is in the Constitution. Go look, they’re not. The U.S. Supreme Court can declare the Affordable Care Act constitutional all it wants, even contradict itself in doing so (by calling a tax not a tax, then reversing itself, and then ignoring the hypocritical double standard, NFIB v. Sebelius, 2012) but that doesn’t make it truly legitimate. The Court acts inconsistently a lot.

Congress has no legitimate delegated authority to run the practice of medicine, we all know that (along with the fact they’re eminently unqualified). The same for insurance. When Obama usurped power to abscond with nearly a fifth of the U.S. economy, and attempted to have federal agents run what doctors do, we realized we were on a road to perdition. From two billion dollars for a simple computer database (promised at $93 million) to a bill we had to pass to find out what’s in it, the Democrat’s ACA was bad before it began. Now, under Trump’s watch, we’ll get to see just how bad. That’s a win.

You can thank whatever you pray to that some Republicans lost in their misguided attempt to takeover medicine. If what they’ve been saying is true—Obamacare is an abject disaster about to collapse—let go for Pete’s sake! Why save it? Think about the conniptions left-wing media is going to have then, with no one to blame but... Bush?

States are down to single insurers because health-care firms are hemorrhaging to death. Some counties have hit zero. Insurers can’t afford to stay put with the “savings” they’re not getting. The public is outraged by massive premiums increases... but at least their services have tanked. So many people didn’t get to enjoy the lie of “keep your own doctor,” how do you think they’ll vote after the media-praised Democrat plan implodes?

If Republicans understood this, they would have hastened its demise, not struggled to take it over. From its ashes a fabulous fresh Phoenix can effloresce. Watch the withered remains of a self-immolated illegal confiscation of our medical practice force quick clean repeals of its festering guts. Emergency triage can facilitate change, with natural free-market selection driving activity. People will demand it, not fight it.

You should be able to buy insurance policies, period. Like products, because they are. Like you do for your car, or home, with options. If any laws are needed, they are repeals—of restrictions on your freedom to shop. That sort of protectionism has no place in this nation—it’s not a health-care thing.

Here’s a scenario. When the first few states finally bottom out, and people have zero coverage or options, a big-dog insurer or two will tell their agents, damn the torpedoes, sell policies. They’ll tell their government overlords, have your lawyers talk to our lawyers, see you in court, for the next decade. While they rake in billions providing excellent customer service.

Nothing real prevents insurers from offering juicy terms like pre-existing-condition coverage (for a price), stay on your parents’ plan (as long as you like, to any age, rates and conditions apply), low monthly rates (with high deductibles, your option). Poor people have poor-people options, not the working stiff’s teat.

Insurers all want your business, and will fight to get it, offering you everything from free large-screen TVs to the specific conditions that suit you. You might even do what my healthy friend Erica does (not her real name, she’s afraid to use it in this sorta free country). Pay doctors cash money for service. She gets excellent prices, top-of-the-line practice and the docs like her. A lot. No monthly fees at all.

When Obamacare goes away because it must, Republicans—and you—will finally realize the enormous win America just endured. Which state will be first? Tennessee is virtually there now apparently. Pinal County, Arizona, has hit zero providers. Next is the domino effect. Alt-left media like The New York Times, the TV networks, CNN and the rest will be embarrassed beyond recognition for lambasting the president for his “defeat.” They were defeated, but they’re such ideologues they don’t know it. Yet. The big question is if Trump is so sharp he planned it this way.

You know what today is.

April 19, The Shot Heard Round the World

Hopefully you don't need me to tell you the American Revolutionary War began at Lexington and Concord on April 19, when 700 British troops marched to confiscate our arms, powder and supplies, and were met by 80 or so citizens in a militia force prepared to stop them by any means necessary. The British stood in the open like bright red targets, the colonists gathered behind trees, and after routing the troops followed them and nipped at their heels as they fled.

Look it up, savor the amazing history, which our corrupted school system now bends out of shape or hides completely. Share it with friends and family. Do your best to overlook the parade of horribles that have also happened on this day in history, that some malcontents would give more focus than the spectacular beginnings of the greatest nation the world has ever seen: More freedom, more abundance, more right to speak your mind, practice your religion, or not, more charity, more justice however imperfect because people are imperfect, and forever improving, because the system allows and encourages improvement. May you and yours celebrate this blessed day.

Where Are Trump’s Taxes?

If you file taxes you already know some of the answers

The lamestream media told you:

Why won’t president Trump show everyone his tax returns? (Repeat fifty-five thousand times without change.) We want to know his net worth. We want to know how much he paid. We have a right to see all this. We demand the data.

USA Today, now an unabashed arm of the democrat party and a full-fledged propaganda tool, is promoting the alt-left’s tax-release campaign, with front-page color coverage of mysteriously coordinated national demonstrations on tax day, April 15. They demand compliance with their demands. No balance or conflicting information was included, despite ethical rules that require two sides to every story.

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

Reporters had stopped asking about Trump’s taxes, now that they have other gripes to repeat ad nausem, (largest "non-nuclear" bomb...) which will frustrate them equally, for similar reason.

That ended when “news” outfits nationwide gave exorbitant coverage to staged rallies by left-wing malcontents demanding presidential action on his tax returns -- where none is required.

The only five problems with reporters’ unyielding request for Trump’s taxes are:

1. As the president has repeatedly said, his returns are under audit, so the papers are only a draft. They are unofficial, subject to change, and can be accepted, rejected or rewritten at the pleasure of IRS. Releasing incomplete unofficial returns serves no one and would only confuse the issue. Where is the reporter who brought this up and said, “Next question please?” This adds to the collapse of credibility journalism now rightfully enjoys.

2. Taxes don’t show your net worth, despite left-wing demands to get that information from the returns. If leftists or reporters filed taxes they would know this. You do. Why hasn’t one reporter chastised one person, including other reporters for not asking about that? Does this indicate that, according to leading experts, they’re all idiots? Or they don’t file taxes themselves, and that’s why they don’t know this simple, common knowledge?

3. The demanders insist, “How much did he pay?” If he paid zero, does that mean he should pay anyway, even if he doesn’t owe? If you make a billion dollars, but lose 1.2 billion, you owe nothing, that’s how it works. These abject haters want him to pay no matter what. They act as if they hate the rich, capitalism that has made them free and well off, and they don’t understand how it all works.

4. Sure, maybe the president should show his taxes. But aren’t your taxes private? I know mine are. Bills are being introduced to change this. Might be a good idea, I haven’t decided. Maybe all documentation should be required. Maybe. Until then, jury's out, rule of law. The previous guy took three years just to tell us where he was born.

5. No matter what they say, the only reason the alt-left and dems are screaming for them is so they can attack. It could say he walks on water and they’d argue he can’t swim. We all know this. Why don’t reporters make the point? And we know that too -- because they’re not neutral reporters, they are attack dogs, just watch the so-called “news.”

According to unsourced reports, Mr. Trump has said he put his returns where they will never be found. Under Mr. Obama’s:

Occidental transcripts
Columbia transcripts
Harvard University records
Punahou Hawaii School K-12 college prep school records (missing)
Illinois State Senate records (missing)
Passport application
Harvard funding source (foreign student aid)
“Born in Kenya” book proposal from literary agent for 16 years
Fast and Furious documents
White House guest list (complete version)
Personal medical and drug use records
Social Security Number irregularities files
Selective Service Card irregularities files
Documentation concerning ACORN, Bill Ayers and Rev. Jeremiah Wright
