SacBee Fail: McClintock Faced Off (And Won!) Against Puppets

Fellow blogger Aaron Park had written about this total media fail in Northern California.

But I wanted to add my $20 to the discussion.

Congressman Tom McClintock (R-Roseville)

What the regressive Left is doing now is nothing more than more hateful empty protesting.

They are trying to take over town halls sponsored by key lawmakers--especially in California--to give the impression that they are deeply unpopular in their districts in this blue state.

Despite what happened to Darrell Issa in his Southern OC District, the rest of the GOP delegation in California fared pretty well. The districts they represent have retained their redness, for what it is worth.

Now, check out what the Sacramento Bee wrote about a Tom  McClintock Town hall in Roseville:

Facing a packed auditorium and raucous crowd, Republican Rep. Tom McClintock on Saturday defended his party’s national agenda and voiced strong support for President Donald Trump’s controversial executive actions to scale back Obamacare, ban visitors from seven predominantly Muslim countries and build a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.

“Vote him out,” hundreds of demonstrators chanted outside the Tower Theatre in downtown Roseville, the Republican-heavy population center of McClintock’s sprawling congressional district. Inside the theater, more than 200 people gathered for a town-hall event hosted by McClintock.

The location of the event should spell out very clearly ... not that Roseville voters are tired of McClintpck, but rather that the protesters are not from Roseville1

Attendees, some carrying signs that read “Resist,” “Dump Tom McTrump” and “Climate change is real,” pressed McClintock to denounce Republican plans to repeal the Affordable Care Act, acknowledge the science supporting the human causes of climate change, and oppose Trump’s executive order temporarily restricting refugee admissions to the U.S.

"Climate change is real" -- how original - and very sad!

I guess all the SJW groups are getting really worn out. All their public displays of anger, abuse, and property damage aren't working anymore.

The act is getting old and tired, boring and unbearable.

Of course, the reliable liberal media in Sacramento hasn't' seen the light, and they are still playing the anti-GOP pro-Democratic news narrative.

“I believe that order is constitutional,” said McClintock, one of several comments that elicited boos at the hourlong event.

People booed? Oh my goodness! (*Yawn*)

McClintock’s visit drew hundreds of people, most of whom had come to express opposition to the new administration. Many identified themselves as liberal Democrats and progressives, while party registration in McClintock’s district – which incorporates all or part of 10 counties spanning from Tahoe to Yosemite – is solidly Republican.

Thank you again, SacBee, for undermining the very narrative you are trying to string out. McClintock stood his ground against George Soros and puppets, nothing more.

Move on!

“This is really all about resisting the Trump agenda,” said Wendy Wood, chairwoman of Indivisible Sierra Nevada, a local chapter of a political organization formed in response to the election. “Most of us have never participated in political activism of any sort. Something is happening here, and people here are not happy with (Trump) and McClintock. We’re here to vote them out.”

LOL! Very funny. Darrell Issa got a wake-up call because he doesn't respond or interact with his cosntitutients enough. McClintock will be just fine.

Roseville police and fire officials capped attendance inside the theater at roughly 200 people. Those left outside voiced frustration about being locked out of the theater, some saying they had driven for hours simply to see McClintock face to face.

You want to know why you were locked out of the theater, razor-blade snowflakes? Because we have laws and building codes, and the fire marshal ensures that only a set number are allowed in a building at one time.

Oakland should have enforced their own laws, too--then all of those people would not have died in that make-shift party scene in an abandoned warehouse.

“We just wanted to be able to ask questions of our representative and share our thoughts on key issues,” wrote Lauren Lake in an email. “I drove hours over a snowy pass to be there … we were told that the venue was at capacity and no one else would be allowed in.”

This is not newsworthy, SacBee. Media Fail!

Inside the theater, McClintock took about a dozen audience questions. Some of the most passionate comments came from people who said they feared losing access to health care if Republicans press forward to repeal the Affordable Care Act without a clear replacement.

Obamacare is not health care, people. It has hurt the health care and health insurance industries. Please, stop with the rote talking points. They are not working. While you are waiting, why not go after the Sacramento Democrats who thought it was OK to add millions of illegals to the welfare roles, including subsidized health ... insurance!

“What do you expect seniors and people with disabilities with low income to do if you take away our Medicare and Medicaid that we rely on to literally stay alive?” asked Amanda Barnes, who said she was paralyzed from her waist down after a hit-and-run accident in a crosswalk five years ago.

So dramatic! It sounds like the members of the audience were coached to say what they were saying.

How about taking a visit down to Loyalton, CA? There, you will meet four retireed employees who witnessed their pensions getting cut. If there is no comprehensive entitlement reforms soon, expect all the benefits to get cut ... for good!

McClintock said his party did not yet have a replacement plan, but that there were several Republican-backed proposals still taking shape.

They have several plans. First, though, just repeal the whole thing.

Do not "Frankenstein" health care, Republicans!

“The answer is a comprehensive bill that rescinds Obamacare in its entirety, and replaces it with reforms that put the patient back in charge of their own decisions, and give them the widest possible range of choices,” McClintock said. “And assure it’s within financial reach for the majority of Americans.”


The response drew shouts of disappointment, as did his comments on climate change.
“In any scientific arena, you are seeing a very vigorous debate over the extent to which man-made carbon dioxide emissions are causing global warming,” McClintock said. “Whether or not we destroy our economy for our children, our planet is going to continue to warm and cool as it has for billions of years.”

Tom McClintock is a stud! He has the courage to stand up to these raging leftists and tell it like it is!

Newsflash -- he was my choice for Govenror in 2003, not Arnold Schwarz-a-house-keeper.

I wish he would think about another bid. McClintock has fought and won many battles in this state/

Many in attendance expressed general disappointment with Trump and called on McClintock to distance himself from recent executive actions, including Trump’s orders scaling back bank regulations and temporarily restricting U.S. entry for refugees as well as visitors from seven predominantly Muslim nations.

“I am terrified about Mr. Trump’s behavior. I literally haven’t slept,” said Jill Ruffman, 58, of Granite Bay. She criticized McClintock and Trump for supporting a House vote to undo an Obama administration rule that required the Social Security Administration to disclose information about disabled recipients with mental illness to the national gun background check system.

Jill Ruffman needs to ... grow up. 

And hurrah for McClintock protecting the Second Amendment rights of retirees!

“I understand you do not like Donald Trump,” McClintock told the crowd at one point. “I sympathize with you. There have been elections where our side has lost. … Just a word of friendly advice: Remember that there were many people in America who disagreed and feared Barack Obama just as vigorously as you disagree with and fear Donald Trump.”


McClintock handled the crowds
like a BOSS!
Several times he thanked the audience for the discourse, even if they disagreed.

Here you witness the fundamental difference between Republicans and Democrats. Republicans can respect people even if we disagree with their ideas. Democrats want to savage people who disagree with them and demonize them for disagreement.

The event also drew Trump supporters, including David Ramsey, who said he volunteered for McClintock’s 2008 campaign and gleefully voted for Trump in November.

“President Trump is doing what he said he was going to do,” Ramsey said. “I like what he’s talking about – securing our borders and vetting immigrants. Hopefully, he’ll lower taxes and reduce big government and regulation. Tom McClintock is a conservative who believes in those same principles.”

YAY! Me too!

McClintock left the theater at 11 a.m., immediately after the town hall concluded, escorted by police as he waded through a thick crowd of protesters who trailed him, shouting, “This is what Democracy looks like.”

McClintock was not "escorted" as though he was in mortal danger. PLEASE!

Final Reflection

The Sacramento Bee is abuzz about any business that will make Republicans look bad and promote Democrats and the liberal phalanx in the state of California.

They wrote a trite sob story about the gay enrollee at William Jessup university, even though his behavior had gone public because of a domestic violence altercation with his boyfriend in their apartment.

So much for "Love Trumps Hate" huh?

What is surprising, though, about the report above was how SacBee outed their bias and undermined the chronic media narrative.

McClintock was not chased out from a town hall. He stood his ground against SJWs who did not even live in the district to begin with.

Here's another point: how many Congressional Democrats are hosting town halls right now? Congressman Ted Lieu (D-Torrance, Los Angeles) throws out a forum by telephone every few months, but refuses to actually face constituents.

And he's  military officer?

  1. I love the way you try to say PROTESTORS are paid Sorros or MoveOn? Haha!

    Not at all! Remember the Tea Party? You know Tom McClintock is the Tea Party Rep if a massive district covering seven counties?


    I hate MoveOn and I march for FREE! It is called Democracy when it is the angry Tea Party but we are paid?

    Get used to it because you will be seeing this until we get the Putin loving PUPPET TRUMP out of office!

    As for McClintock, hope you are not an animal lover because he is a die-hard ANTI ANIMAL monster leading charge to dismantle Endangered Species Act which will kill 1000s if animals & he's also lying to constituents to get the federally protected WILD HORSES sent to SLAUGHTER so they can graze more cattle!
    I live in this "cowards" district and if you go READ the POLICE account of that day...he was dramatic asking for police escort from gray haired peaceful protesters chanting "shame on you or vote him out!"

    Also, McClintock was quoted as saying "he had NEVER experienced this at a town hall meeting."

    Exciting to see the pro Tea Party people posses at the NEW & IMPROVED & MORE EDUCATED (ANTI TRUMP/ ANTI REPUBLICAN) TEA PARTY!


    Lastly, I don't think "he was a MAN standing up taking to senior citizens?" We're you there? Haha

    Think your Tea Party likes to LIE like their FOX FAKE NEWS CHANNEL! It's fine. Just take two aspirin and turn off FOX FAKE NEWS and maybe your INTELLIGENCE WILL RETURN?
