California MassResistance: Full-Court Press Against SB1146 During July Recess


California is embracing the perverse LGBT agenda almost as quickly as Massachusetts already has. The infamous openly gay (and pedophile) Harvey Milk has his own state holiday. Major cities have their own homosexual “pride” parades.



There are glimmers of hope, although not very strong. LGBT pageantries have begun dying down in San Francisco, a city where only the most well-to-do can afford to live, in the midst of overwhelming squalor. West Hollywood, considered a gay “mecca” for decades, discussed removing the six-colored rainbow flag from city hall. Los Angeles is reeling from crime and corruption on an unprecedented scale, and pro-gay forces are in conflict about how to celebrate their “pride”.

Nevertheless, the attacks on the family have taken on an unprecedented surge. The California Republican Party allowed the pro-gay Log Cabin Republicans to become a chartered group, even though party by-laws forbid chartering groups with values in conflict with the state party platform.
Before Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker signed legislation to allow men into women’s bathrooms, the California state legislature had signed off on similar legislation, which would allow “transgender” students in public schools to use student restrooms and locker rooms rather than having to change in a separate room entirely.

Pro-family groups throughout the state fought hard to overturn this law through initiative, but fell short—twice—to collect the necessary signatures.

The state superintendent has also signed off on forcing students as early as second grade to learn about the key figures in LGBT history.

I kid you not. There is nothing gay about this agenda.

And now, the latest iteration of these perverse policies is manifesting behind SB 1146.

This legislation would effectively shut down Christian higher education in the state. Christian colleges would have to scale back the exemptions they claim to specific religious training only. The schools would also be reuired to inform prospective students that they claim the Title IX exemptions.
The legislation has been amended and changed numerous times, but the concerns about it have not gone away.

Barry Corey, the president of Biola University, one of the oldest Christian colleges in the state of California, has issued his latest concerns about this legislation: “We don’t them want to change who were are.”

This approach is not the strongest. It does not attack the core issues relating to this agenda, that so much of it is predicated on lies and distortions, chief of which is that homosexual behavior and transgenderism are not civil rights, and therefore do not fall within the confines of Title IX in the first place.

In spite of the tepid response from most establishment pro-family groups, California MassResistance is taking on a more direct, confrontational approach.

On June 29th, a few days before the state legislature adjourned for summer recess, our team stormed and protested in front of the bill’s sponsor, the openly gay and hostile State Senator Ricardo Lara. Staffers were supposed to meet with five members of our team, but they never showed up.
On the same day, the California state assembly’s judiciary committee conducted a sham hearing on the bill, and passed it out to the Appropriations committee, which will review the legislation during the first week of August.

After the judiciary committee hearing, California MassResistance members knew that they had their work cut out for them.

Immediately, call sheets were sent out to pro-family groups to contact all members of the Assembly appropriations committee.
From there, our team planned specific visits to confront specific lawmakers, and hold them accountable to vote against this terrible bill.
Our team visited both Republicans as well as Democrats.

The staffer, Sara Wiltfong, offered no clear answer whether Hadley would vote for or against the bill. This lack of certitude was very disconcerting.

Two Democratic assemblymembers, Patti Lopez and Jimmy Gomez, despite the state party’s radical left-wing leanings, have announced that they will vote against SB 1146.

The next day, California MassResistance paid a visit to a public event hosted by the Assembly minority leader Chad Mayes (R-Yucca Valley, Yucaipa). Coincidentally enough, concerns about SB1146 were weighing on many residents’ minds at the event. Mayes indicated that he did not know a lot about the bill. That was very disturbing news to hear. We expected him to signal emphatic opposition to the bill. Here are his remarks to the group meeting.

The next week, California MassResistance planned a more extensive lobbying effort, targeting not just members of the Appropriations Committee, but individuals in swing districts or tight races.
Friday July 22.

The first group spoke with representatives of assemblyman Chris Holden. He has normally voted more liberal on key issues, but constituents have also noted that he attends a local church, and faces a challenger for his seat.

California MassResistance announced their concerns about SB 1146 and urged a No Vote:

Another group headed to Assembly Miguel Santiago’s office in Los Angeles. He had cancelled the meeting with constituents the night before!

Shame on him! He faces a strong challenger who is taking no special interest money!


California MassResistance does not rely on persuasion. Most lawmakers must feel the heat to see the light. Our team is committed to making it very clear to legislators: Vote No on SB 1146 or we will throw you out of office!


1. Majority Leader Ian Calderon
2. Assemblyman Tom Daly
3. Assemblyman Patrick O’Donnell

Two members were interested in visiting Calderon’s office, but nothing came of it.
Two members of the team spoke with Daly’s staff in Anaheim:
The greatest demonstration occurred at Assemblyman O’Donnell’s office, where at least fifty people arrived in front of the building, and five of us went in to speak with O’Donnell’s Communications Director.

For the next thirty minutes, parents and grandparents from Christian college alumni explained their opposition to SB 1146. We had another person in the lobby join our discussion. Pastor Jerry Reub of Cornerstone Church explained how churches and Christian schools were offering services to the community, while Senator Ricardo Lara was only interested in limiting their freedom of speech and outreach.

Check out videos of our protest here, here, and here.

Here are some key photos from our meeting with O’Donnell and his staff:

City Councils take lead to protest SB 1146

Locally elected officials in California are also sounding the alarm about this terrible bill, and one of those cities is located in Senator Lara’s own district!

Cudahy city councilman Jack Guerrero submitted a discussion item to the July 25th Cudahy City Council agenda. He gave a passionate defense of the First Amendment and religious liberty, but neither of his remaining couples would even second his motion.

Terrible, but activists in the city supported Guerrero’s fight for the First Amendment:

The next day, I visited La Mirada, the home of Biola University.

The city council has drafted a letter in opposition to SB 1146, which they have forwarded to Senator Ricardo Lara.

The councilman who has been most active on this issue, Andrew Sarega, sat with me and shared more specific concerns about the bill and why religious freedom must be protected at all costs.

Final Reflection
Our work is cut out for us, but the momentum against this legislation is gaining.




"Illegal Alien" by Genesis

Before Phil Collins' solo career, he was the lead singer for the band "Genesis".

This song is probably one of the most politically incorrect I have ever heard.

No one would think of hearing a song like this played on the radio today,

The music isn't that great.

It certainly isn't music anyone could dance too.

So here i

"Illegal Alien"

Got out of bed, wasn't feeling too good
With my wallet and my passport, a new pair of shoes
The sun is shining so I head for the park,
With a bottle of Tequila, and a new pack of cigarettes

I got a cousin and she got a friend,
Who thought that her aunt knew a man who could help
At his apartment I knocked on the door,
He wouldn't come out until he got paid.
Now don't tell anybody what I wanna do
If they find out you know that they'll never let me through, cos

It's no fun being an illegal alien
No, it's no fun being an illegal alien

Down at the office had to fill out the forms
A pink one, a red one, the colours you choose,
Up to the counter to see what they think
They said "it doesn't count man, it ain't written in ink".
I don't trust anybody, least not around here, cos

It's no fun being an illegal alien, I tell ya
It's no fun being an illegal alien, no no no no no
It's no fun being an illegal alien, I mean it when I tell ya that
It's no fun being an illegal alien,
An illegal alien, O.K.

Illegal Alien (Credit: Virgin Records)


Consideration for your fellow man
Would not hurt anybody, it sure fits in with my plan
Over the border, there lies the promised land
Where everything comes easy, you just hold out your hand

Keep your suspicions, I've seen that look before
But I ain't done nothing wrong now, is that such a suprise
But I've got a sister who'd be willing to oblige
She will do anything now to help me get to the outside

So don't tell anybody what I wanna do
If they find out you know that they'll never let me through, because

It's no fun being an illegal alien, I tell ya
It's no fun being an illegal alien, and it's getting me down
It's no fun being an illegal alien, no no no no no
It's no fun being an illegal alien, yeah yeah yeah

It's no fun (not much fun) being an illegal alien, I tell ya that
It's no fun being an illegal alien, I tell ya
It's no fun being an illegal alien, no no no
It's no fun (not bloody much fun) being an illegal alien,

It's no fun being an illegal alien, and that's what I am.

What do you think of this song?

I am still trying to wrap my ahead around why Phil Collins and Co, would right something like this!

The last time this song was played live? In Los Angeles, 1984.

What would happen if a music group wanted to perform this song today?!

I think more citizens feel like the illegals in their own country!

Jane Elliot: The "Anti-Racist" Racist Bigot

I am starting to see where all the anti-white, pro-multicultural anti-American bigotry has really come from.

Embittered liberals like Jane Elliot taught crowds of guilty white people that they are prejudiced.

She also claimed that public schools are inherently racist.

Jane Elliot


Are they?

A large number of public schools are still critically segregated.

By design? Yes, but government design.

That is not the fault of "White America."

Jane Elliot was stirring up racial strife.

She forget to include some key elements in the fight against racism.

Black people did not stay in the back of the bus.

They exercised their rights to fight and win.

Racial groups like the NAACP are now living in the past.

In fact, listening to some of Elliot's rhetoric, she sounds anti-white.

Isn't that racist?

Furthermore, the argument that only certain people have skin color is wrong

A black woman, a professor at Cal State Long Beach taught me that everyone has color in their skin even "white people."

The argument about "Brown-eyed people are smarter than green-eyed people" is a spurious argument. It's not about the color of our eyes, but cultural commitments to the truth.

Sorry, but all this talk about racism, and tagging every person who has lighter skin as "a hater" is getting old fast.

This is turning into another fascist attempt to shut people down just because they have differences of opinion,

Elliot was indeed controversial (Credit: Getboldtoday,com)


Check out her discussion on Oprah from twenty years ago.

Shame on Jane Elliot!

ICYMI: Congressman McClintock Slammed Lawless House Democrats Over Gun Control Sit-In

I have great respect for Congressman Tom McClintock (R-El Dorado Hills)

He is a gold star representative in a sea of dirt, fluff, and cowardice.

Despite what people say about California, the land of fruits and nuts, we have good people still fighting for our rights, and for what is right.

He has stood up for conservative principles, even when it seemed that those directives were not popular. He will not cave, bend, or weave toward tax increases, even when other Republicans give in.

He represented a well-known enclave along the Ventura County/Santa Barbara border for a decade.

After he was termed out, he decided to run for Congress, in Northern California, since his children had been raised in the Sacramento/Elk Grove region for the greater part of their lives.

Today, he represents a diligent conservative area in Califonia, a red state within blue California.

Perhaps he can run for Governor again--for the State of Jefferson ...

He ran for Governor of California in 2003. He exhorted all voters to vote their conscience. I did, and I am glad that he was my first choice.

Rep, Tom McClintock slams the Democrats' illegal gun control sit-in


He fought against illegal immigration, over-taxation, the destruction of marriage and family.

I encourage him to keep up the fight.

He also stands for the rule of law, something which the Democrats treat as negligible and arbitrary.

On June 22nd, 2016 the Democratic minority, like the petulant, unruly children that they are, took over the house floor, stopped all debate with an unjust, undemocratic sit-in.



The only Congressman to shame them for these outrageous antics was ... Tom McClintock.


House Rules, Or Rules for Radicals?
Congressman Tom McClintock
House of Representatives, Washington, D.C.
July 5, 2016

Mr. Speaker:

    On the afternoon of June 22nd, a large number of Democrats brought the deliberations of the House of Representatives to a standstill in one of the most disgraceful and childish breaches of decorum in the history of this institution.  In complete contempt of this House and the rule of law, they shouted down all with whom they disagreed, they blocked access to the microphones as members sought to address the chair, and they illegally occupied the Hall of the House – forcing an early adjournment and costing this House three full days of legislative deliberations.

Thankfully, there are still some Democrats who have not completely lost their minds. These remaining Democrats in swing districts recognize that they cannot stomp on the Second Amendment and hope to keep their jobs during the next election.

    Abraham Lincoln said it best, “There is no grievance that is a fit object of redress by mob law.”  What we saw was the mob law of Occupy Wall Street brought to the House Floor.  

Indeed. The radicalization of our political process is wreaking untold harm

    They are seeking to use the recent terrorist attacks as justification for making it harder for law-abiding Americans to defend themselves.  A strange logic, but so be it.  They certainly have a right to their opinions, a right to express those opinions on the House floor, and a right to use all of the procedures of the House to act on their opinions.  What they do not have is the right to prevent those with different views from exercising the same rights.  Yet that’s precisely what they did. 

McClintock recognized their right to be wrong. He also criticized their wrong to take away the rights of other House members to conduct business on the House floor.

    These Democratic members have many procedures and opportunities to bring their bills to the House for a vote.  They could have executed a discharge petition to bring their bill immediately to the floor.  They could have moved to have their bill inserted into any bill pending on the House Floor – a common motion that we routinely hear and vote upon several times a week.   

A reminder: Congressman Mark Meadows filed a discharge petition to have Speaker John Boehner removed from his Speakership. It worked without having to gather the necessary number of signatures then. What were the Democrats really afraid of?

The fact is, their proposals were considered in the Senate and voted down.  Their proposals were considered in a House Committee and voted down.  Their discharge petition is pending at this desk right now, awaiting enough signatures to execute it. 

The truth is hard for Democrats. The American people have rejected their abortive, anti-freedom ideologies. The Second Amendment has become a more protected right, and firearms more sought-after than ever before. More states are now shall-issue on concealed carry permits, too.

    Their only problem is that they don’t have enough votes.  Well sorry, that’s called “democracy.” The majority of their colleagues simply disagree with them – for some very good reasons.

The illegal sit-in was all photo-op, nothing more

How ironic, that the Republican member of Congress is lecturing the "Democratic" party on democracy.

    Their rights were honored and protected by the Republican majority under the rule of law.  Yet they denied those same rights to others by replacing the rule of law with the rule of the mob -- and they did so on the most sacred ground of our democratic republic – the Hall of the House of Representatives.

Mob rule is utter lawlessness. Pure and simple. The Left is not interested in justice or equity. They are interested in their will, their way, or they will make you get out of their way.

    Instead of working within the time-honored rules of the House to convince the majority to their way of thinking, they decided to tear down the rules.  This was the lawless Left on full display and I hope the American people took a long hard look at it, and understand the threat to our democratic traditions and institutions that this conduct reveals.

They tore down the rules, and I imagine their numbers will be further torn down throughout the country. Democrats are getting decimated all over the country. The raw pursuit and abuse of power is putting them out of power. Even in more liberal states like Illinois and Massachusetts, Republican governors are shutting down the tax-and-spend frenzy like never before.

    In recent days, we have seen other Leftist mobs assembled under a foreign flag violently attack American citizens who were merely trying to exercise their right to peaceably assemble in support their candidate for President.  We have seen this administration attempt to criminalize political dissent, and use our government to intimidate people out of participating in our political process.  And now we have watched this lawless behavior imported onto the floor of the House of Representatives. 

Lawlessness, utter lawlessness has been on fully display, and it's time to stand up to it. It's time to demand that the radicals live by the rules that everyone else has to abide by, or rule them out of order.

    The House leadership decided not to confront this unprecedented spectacle as it unfolded, and I do not gainsay their decision here.  It was obvious the members involved were trying to provoke a physical confrontation. 

Shame on Congressman Ted Lieu (D-CA) for illegal sit-in.
Get off your butt and get to work!


But serious damage was done that day to our orderly process of government and it cannot go unchallenged.  Doing so would establish a dangerous and corrosive precedent antithetical to everything which this institution – and our country – stands for.

Shame on Speaker Paul Ryan for not rebuking the Democratic riff-raff for their unbecoming disorder. He needs to be removed, too, just like John Boehner was forced to step down last year.


    The Constitution provides that the House may sanction members for disorderly behavior, and the members responsible for the events of June 22nd and 23rd must be called to account for their actions.  If we fail to do so, we will have replaced the House Rules with “Rules for Radicals.”

We are waiting, Speaker Ryan. We are waiting for you to do your job and to demand the rule of law.

Of course, Ryan is more interested in following along with the interests of Big Business and their open-borders lobby.

Final Reflection

Political correctness and Alinsky-ite shame and blame has tried to overtake our public discourse. This is shameful. This is disgraceful. Instead of playing defense and going along with all of this perversity, Republicans, conservatives, Americans of all backgrounds need to stand up to the lies and demand their rights under the Constitution.

We do not need to make nice with ideological adversaries who are bent on pandering to illegal aliens, criminal refugees, and special interests getting rich while impoverishing everyone else.

Thank you, Congressman McClintock for standing up for all our rights!

All of them - and if you ever think about running for Governor again, count on me to vote for you!

U.S. Senator Rand Paul (R-Kentucky) Fights for Right-to-Work

 U.S. Senator Rand Paul was a worthy Presidential candidate.

The problem with political libertarianism, however, limits its appeal to economic issues.

The Presidency must focus on social and foreign policies issues, too.

Well-respected libertarian thinkers like Murray Rothbard never claimed that the libertarian philosophy would answer those problems.

U.S. Senator Rand Paul (R-Kentucky)


And yet, a political candidate must have ready answers for those issues.

Rand Paul's campaign for President may have failed, but his push to get the federal government out of our pocket books and personal lives is still going strong.

He has also been an ardent fighter against Big Labor and their anti-First Amendment abuses.

Check out his latest eblast, in league with the National Right-to-Work Foundation:

Dear Concerned American,

It's vital that you sign your petition immediately.

Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, Barack Obama and the Big Labor bosses are about to go ballistic.

One of the biggest complaints I still have with Donald Trump is that he has said nothing--absolutely nothing--to stop the abuses of public sector labor unions, and has offered nothing to deal with the encroachments and dangers they pose against the First Amendment.

Collective bargaining abuses are ruining states all over the country. Why should hard-pressed taxpayers continue to foot the bills for bloated pensions and benefits for civil servants?

You see, the National Right to Work Act has been introduced to forever repeal Big Labor's power to force workers to pay union dues just to get or keep a job.

Good! No one should face extortion to get a job. That is wrong!

So the union lobbyists, Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi and their allies are going to use every trick in the book to bury the National Right to Work Act.



I am glad that someone is still paying attention to Big Labor abuses.

And they want to do it as quietly as possible.

The union kingpins (and their water-carriers in Congress) can't afford the consequences of having their coercive privileges publicly debated and voted on in Congress!

They don't want the American people to know that:
***

Millions of workers are forced to surrender part of every paycheck to keep their jobs;

This cash funds violent "organizing" drives, provides a limousine lifestyle for union bigwigs and bankrolls radical, tax-and-spend politicians like Barack Obama, Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi.

Republicans need focus as much as they can on the lavish life-styles of union bosses. They live like kings, while union employees are treated like peons.
***

Big Labor's power is deadly to millions of small businesses;

Big Labor politicians and Obama-stacked bureaucracies are strangling small businesses with confiscatory taxes, destructive laws and straitjacket regulations.

***

Forced-unionism exports millions of good jobs overseas;

This is one of the reasons

Productivity-killing work rules, workplace class warfare, slowdowns, "sick-outs" and strikes have all taken their crippling toll, closing the doors of many businesses -- for good.

Once again, the problems with trade in the United States does not just rest on bad trade deals, but overbearing union rules and labor union abuses.

More Economic growth in right-to-work states (Credit: Media Matters)

***

Big Labor thugs often use their forced-unionism power to terrorize workers and communities with violent strikes, where they have gotten away with beatings, arson, extortion -- even murder!

Don't take Rand Paul's words for it. Ask Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker.

In the fight for a National Right to Work law, opponents of forced-unionism will face a showdown against the full might of Big Labor.

That's why it's vital that you act at once to ignite massive public support for a National Right to Work bill.

Now is the time to act.

By the time the National Right to Work Act comes up for a vote, every member of Congress must realize the eyes of the American people will be watching.

National opinion polls show that nearly 80% of the American people think it's wrong to force workers to pay union dues under the threat of being fired if they don't pay!

The vast majority of voters oppose the policy, and yet they can't do anything about it. 

Ridiculous!

And it's critical the National Right to Work Committee, who has led the fight against forced dues for over 50 years, has your help in demonstrating that to Congress.

If the public's attention is fixed on this battle, politicians in Congress will be forced to recognize -- or defy to their peril -- the massive public opposition to compulsory unionism.

Then we'll see who dares to stand with Big Labor . . .

. . . And who stands with freedom and the American people.

Sincerly,

Rand Paul, M.D.
U.S. Senator

Final Reflection

Every individual who seeks a job should not have to pay an extortion to a labor union to work.

Labor unions had their place in our economy, but the expansion of learning, innovation, and opportunity has exposed unions as living in the past.

Our economy can grow as we allow individual workers to find gainful employment, and stop shutting out workers who want to move up and profit in their lives.

It's time for Right-to-Work across the country. I hope that more U.S. Senators join with Senator Paul's to make it happen.

Sign the petition for Right-to-Work here.

Share this information far and wide. Let's help U.S. Senator Rand Paul and end forced unionism in the United States, the land of the free.


Thanks for the Help, Debbie. Really!

The Wikileaks cables have been a
conservative’s best friend.

They affirmed that President George W. Bush did not lie about Iraq. Wikileaks proved that armed personnel continued searching for WMD. Of course, the Washington Post reported on the immense discovery of WMD materials in 2005, but that standard was not good enough for the “Bush Lied. People Died” crowd.

They have exposed the corrupt, disingenuous collusion of the mainstream media with the Democratic Party. The DNC fed false narratives about North Carolina’s common-sense bathroom ordinance, among other issues.

Wikileaks just washed away the smug sense of innocent ignorance which the Democratic Party wrapped around itself for the past four decades.

With the latest grand rapids of revelations, that the DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman-Schultz was not an impartial force in the Democratic primary--a new mantra was born:

“Debbie Lied. Hillary’s Fried.”

 “Debbie Lied. The Democratic Party Died.”

Then I found another slogan, advertised on the posters of outraged Democratic activists booing : “Thanks for the ‘help’, Debbie!”

Yes, indeed.

Can someone get me a copy of that sign? Schultz really has helped … the Republicans, and by extension this country.

But first, some background.

Election 2008 left a lingering retinue of blind feminists who demanded the first woman president. The media has been propping up the flagging corpse of the Hillary Clinton brand for the past two decades, determined to keep the Clinton charisma—lawless yet favored, unruly yet popular—at the top of the Democratic ticket.

From 2015 to now, months of intrigue, machinations, and pro-Hillary interventionism throughout the Democratic primary have all come to light. The Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman-Schultz was working behind the scenes to ensure that Hillary Clinton became the Democratic Party’s next Presidential nominee, the democratic process notwithstanding.



So, the DNC was cheating, breaking the rules, violating the principles of their own party to get their queen elected to the throne. Let’s be honest: the Weekend at Bernie’s crowd knew that the DNC was not playing fair. Reporters have been reporting all the upset from these hard-core populist socialists.
Communist Van Jones denounced Debbie, and would have preferred Reince Priebus run the DNC.
As mentioned, Bernie supporters booed Debbie at the Florida Democratic Party convention.

They also booed minority leader Nancy Pelosi, who has presided over the incredible, shrinking Democratic constituency in Congress. In the U.S. Senate, Minority Leader Harry Reid is retiring, with his gambling-labor union-mobocracy political machine in complete shambles all over the Silver State. A Republican will replace him in November. Democrats have plenty of reasons to be unhappy.
And it all comes back to Little Debbie’s big fat Democratic mess.

Under her tenure, the Democratic Party has degenerated into the most un-democratic political organization on record. Perhaps the Russian politburo can boast of a more open, honest, and transparent record. They are despotic elites with no interest in the common man. Let’s go back further, to The Soviet Union, whose leadership would step on your throat, feed you their own feces, expect you to like it, and not pretend to be your friend.

The Democratic Party: Hillary’s Hypocrisy.

The liberal-progressives’ pretense of helping the little guy and pushing back against the One Percent has gone down the drain with WikiLeaks’ revelations.

And now, the Democratic Party’s full-blown implosion lies before us.

Again, whom should we applaud for this slow-moving self-destruction?

Thank you, Debbie Wasserman-Schultz.

Her East Coast lip, while playing up South Coast Florida hip, has landed her in quite a trip of trouble.
The WikiLeaks are adding a slow-drip torture to the Democratic Party’s chances of winning in November.

Debbie Schultz was tipping her hand the whole time for Hillary Clinton. Forget Clinton Cash. How about Clinton Capitulation?

Then again, the premonitions were agitating many of us.

The Democratic Party convention in Nevada was a precursor for so much worse. I had no idea how bad, though. Disgusted and disenfranchised populists in Nevada simply wanted their party chairwoman to play by the rules. She didn’t. “I’m with her” has been the not-so-subtle agenda of the reigning Democratic political class.

Now, after the tens of thousands of emails dumped by Assange and Co. we find that Little Debbie wasn’t leveling the Democratic playing field for all the candidates.

Of course, the inklings of pro-Hillary unfair play were playing out before us much earlier. The first Democratic Party debate featured five candidates, but Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii chose to resign as Vice-Chair because she was endorsing Bernie Sanders. She also protested that other qualified Presidential candidates were not included on the debate state.
At least she was honest.

Then the remarks from Jim Webb, former U.S. Senator from Virginia, called out the “Hillary-all-the-way” slanted forum, where Clinton got to run off at the mouth, while the only candidate within the Democratic Party with any semblance of sanity on that stage.

The remaining debates featured Hillary and Bernie going back and forth. All the while, little Debbie made sure that their heated word-scrums were broadcasted on weekends, at inopportune times when fewer people would be watching.

Some of the revelations in the WikiLeaks docu-dump were particularly enlightening, but mostly because they were telling us what we kinda, sorta already knew, but couldn’t quite prove.
I believed that Republicans would win the White House in 2016. I had supposed that another candidate would be leading the way. But regardless of the top of the GOP ticket, the Democratic Party finds itself falling apart, wracked with illegitimacy, compounded by Debbie’s promotion to the Clinton campaign.

Bernie supporters, and disaffected partisans have taken over the DNC convention. Elijah Cummings, the chairman of the DNC Platform committee, faced the “No TPP” rants from a disappointed Bernie set.  They chanted “Lies! Lies” over former defense secretary Leon Panetta’s comments. They booed the permanent committee chairwoman Marcia Fudge into silence.

A democratic insurgency is exposing the latent corruption of their anti-Democratic party.
And I am loving every minute of it.


Thanks for the help, Debbie. Really!
