Northam should lose…

leave a comment »

Do Virginians realize that Democratic gubernatorial candidate Ralph Northam thinks  67% of them  are racists?   If they pretend to be worried about Ed Gillespie’s anti-illegal immigrant rhetoric,  do they acknowledge that Northam used anti-illegal rhetoric to  win election  in 2007?

They should care,  because they allowed Clinton crony Terry McAuliffe to assume the governor’s office,  where his legacy will be illegally restoring voting rights to thousands of felons in an attempt to ensure the election of more Democrats.

The racist ad created and run by the Latino Fund in alliance with Northam has backfired,  as it should have,  and polling now shows the race within  the margin.   A brand-new  poll shows  Gillespie ahead.   The Democrats’  race-baiting  and parade of lies is producing blow-back.

Now all that is required is for real Virginians,  and by that I mean those who were born there,  who understand the hills and hollows and the rocky outcrops and grassy fields where so much blood was shed,  get going and vote!

UPDATE:  What to   watch for  today,  but either way,  it’s about  to be over.

Buying an election?

leave a comment »

Democrats have poured  millions of dollars  and some Hollywood glitz into today’s Georgia congressional election for the seat once held by Rep. Tom Price, who is now Trump’s HHS secretary.   They made a big effort in the recent Kansas election  which Republicans won.  Jon Ossoff is the Democratic vcandidate, but you will have a very difficult time finding any campaign material which mentions that he is actually a Democrat,  which I think should tell us something about how Democrats view their own party’s branding these days.

UPDATE:  Democrats must not like their chances if they’re resorting to stealing voting  machines.   New question:  why did it take Cobb County two days to notify the Georgia Secretary of State about the theft?

UPDATE:  I forgot to mention that Ossoff can’t even vote  for himself today,  as he does  not live  in the district he wants to represent.

UPDATE:   Well,  the votes have  been tallied  and Democrat Ossoff and Republican former Georgia Secretary of State Karen Handel will face off in a June 20th runoff,  which favors Handel because the Republican votes won’t be distributed  amongst eleven  candidates.   Apparently Democrats couldn’t menage to cheat enough even with some polling places suddenly extending their  hours.

The dilemma for Democrats is that Kansas and Georgia were supposed to be the  best targets  for them and they have thus far failed.   Ossoff at least recognized early on that the Democratic message wasn’t resonating and tried assiduously to avoid mentioning his party affiliation,  but some of the others have already hoisted the party banner on high.   As Jeremy Carl so succinctly put it,  Dems couldn’t even conjure up a  moral victory  in Georgia.

Michael Moore’s warning…

with 3 comments

The Hollywood lefty was no doubt in a sour mood because his latest documentary “Where to Invade Next” is a box office flop with an opening location average of less than $3,000.   Compare that to Dinesh D’Souza’s current “Hillary’s America:  The Secret History of the Democratic Party”, which had an opening average of over $26,000.

Or perhaps Moore is feeling the panic after feeling the Bern.   At any rate,  he told Bill Maher yesterday that  he thinks  Trump will win this November.   Given the  latest polls,  I suspect more than a few of his pals share that nightmare.

Odor of upset…

leave a comment »

Hillary Clinton was expecting a coronation as she sailed easily to the presidency.   Democrats were happy to have socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders run as a Democrat because they calculated he would make Queen Hillary look moderate and reasonable,  despite the fact that she is neither.  The superdelegates she has locked up are unlikely to desert her unless she is indited and they are ordered to switch their allegiance,  so she will be the Democratic nominee.

But the latest polls show that she is in danger of  losing California  to her foil,  and that is causing Democratic heads to swell dangerously,  and show noticeable signs of incipient panic amongst the troops.  One should note that most Democrats do not care that their likely nominee is under federal investigation and stands a very real chance of being indited for a few of her many crimes.   They do not care that she endangered national security because she did not want anyone to be able to find out what she was doing.   It is telling that His Oneness is attacking Donald Trump in speeches  —  it’s not because he has any fondness for his former Secretary of State,  but because her legal jeopardy has the potential to damage his shiny little legacy.

Restoring rights…

leave a comment »

Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe  claims he  is restoring the voting rights of more than 200,000 felons because of the state’s history of disenfranchising black voters.   Rubbish!   He has been governor since 2013,   and could have made this decision any time in the past three years, so he is doing this to help his old pal Hillary Clinton in her bid to become President.

UPDATE:  Doesn’t  McAuliffe sound  oh so morally superior and caring?
