(1) The totalitarian left is playing with fire; (2) The GOP establishment set itself ablaze; (3) The realignment is here; (4) Big Media suicides; (5) It’s Chicago 1968.
It is as we have predicted since 2007. Every year, every month, our crystal ball lights up with the news that will soon arrive before it arrives. This past week has not surprised us at all.
We’re not surprised, but we are disgusted. Every decent person should be disgusted and no one surprised. We’ve seen this before. Chicago 1968.
The streets of Chicago smelled of riot in 1968. Young white people mostly, protested a far off war that made less and less sense as the loses in lives and treasure increased daily. The vast “silent majority” was disgusted both with the stupidity of the war as well as the vagrant mobs that burned the flag and mocked much of what the “silent majority” believed in. Labor unions found themselves in turmoil as the workers strayed to the Republican Party in a cosmic roar heard by few except those that listened.
The self righteous on the left, prodded by well financed totalitarian organizers, continue to believe that childish antics on the street which feed their egos have no consequence except those they desire. In 1968 the consequences of street riots came in November.
We provided the same warning, the same lessons of 1968, when first the Occupy Wall Street loons and their totalitarian masters began to block traffic and cause havoc. For the Black Lives Matter rioters we gave the same warnings/lessons. Now the totalitarian left has a new target: Donald J. Trump. Our warnings/lessons we repeat today.
Presidential candidate and front runner Donald J. Trump could not deliver a speech in Chicago on Friday. Well organized hoodlums, disguised as “protesters”, invaded the auditorium where Trump was to speak and achieved their aim to “shut this down”. Like the 1968 protesters, the BLM criminals, the OWS totalitarians, the enemies of free speech rejoiced with self-congratulations and great noise. What they did not hear was the “silent majority” ready to vote on Tuesday in Illinois, North Carolina, Ohio, Florida, the North Mariana Islands, and Missouri.
With those elections in mind, Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz joined in solidarity with the thugs and criminals of Chicago, BLM, OWS, and the enemies of free speech who demand “politically correct” speech as well as the “politically correct” nonsense labeled “tone”.
On Tuesday, March 15, we will harvest what the left totalitarians allied with Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio planted.
The realignment we wrote about, the Prairie Fire, is here. A great deal is already ablaze. We noted this past week that the right wing website Ace of Spades has debased itself in their hate of Donald Trump. The once powerful HotAir website is likewise just a clump of cinders because of blind hatred of Donald Trump. Now Breitbart is in ashes having immolated in hatred of Trump. Red State is dead state and wants violence against Trump supporters:
My advice for reporters and protestors visiting Donald Trump events is simple: You have a right to keep and bear arms. Use it. If Trump’s brownshirts know their targets are armed, they’ll get less handsy, fast.
Red State has been deranged ever since they banned Donald J. Trump and Dr. Ben Carson from their convention. As loony toons as Red State is, the Breitbart story is particularly sensational and lurid. One of their reporters, Michelle Fields, the love interest of Jamie Weinstein of Daily Caller made the sensational claim of an assault by the Trump campaign manager. It’s not the first astonishing claim made by Michelle Fields.
We’ll fully disclose our bias here. Since 2008 when we hear of even good reporters/journalists getting killed or hurt our concern is very limited. Such is our contempt of Big Media that it can best be expressed with that joke about lawyers. “What do you say if 1000 lawyers drowned in a shipwreck?” Answer: “A good start.” That’s our attitude toward our Big Media masters. There might be some good apples in the barrel, but we’ll throw out the whole batch, even the good apples, to get rid of the worms. Weinstein and Fields are worms who want to make themselves the story everywhere they go.
Such is the crazy world of the anti-Trump right wing that the Breitbart website is now in meltdown as their own articles attacking Trump and his campaign manager on behalf of Michelle Fields include entire sections in which evidence contradicts what the headlines convey:
12:40 p.m. ET: MSNBC has now released new footage that presumably shows the altercation, albeit obscured, as well as a previously undisclosed apparent conversation between Terris and Lewandowski.
New video of Donald Trump’s press conference Tuesday evening shows that the Washington Post’s account of an altercation involving Breitbart News reporter Michelle Fields could not possibly have happened as Ben Terris reported. [snip]
Audio of the incident, published on Politico, shows Fields asking Terris if the individual who pulled her left arm was, in fact, “Corey.” Terris says it was — an assertion he later repeated in print: “I watched as a man with short-cropped hair and a suit grabbed her arm and yanked her out of the way. He was Corey Lewandowski, Trump’s 41-year-old campaign manager.”
However, Lewandowski was not the only “man with short-cropped hair and a suit” walking near Trump. And he was walking on the opposite side of Trump from Fields, and Terris.
Multiple cameras recorded the moment when the alleged incident occurred. The claim is sensational as reported by the Trump hating Weekly Standard:
Michelle Fields, a Breitbart.com reporter and a former Fox News contributor, was grabbed by Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski and yanked “toward the ground like a ragdoll,” an eyewitness tells the Daily Beast.
Tons of cameras, tons of reporters, yet no video that shows the high heeled Fields “yanked to the ground like a ragdoll”? There is plenty of video but somehow the moment when Fields is “yanked to the ground like a ragdoll” is nowhere seen.
Why do we bother with this nonsense from Weinstein and Fields? Because the supporters of Cruz and Rubio in Big Media are desperate. Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio will be destroyed on Tuesday so Big Media on the right will lie, cheat, steal, to help them and hurt Donald J. Trump.
It’s not only the Big Media allies of Rubio and Cruz that are disgustingly desperate. Ted Cruz, the ally of the GOP establishment via Neil Bush, Romney, Graham, and various other losers, attacked Trump and sided with the mobs of Chicago:
Friday, March 11, 2016: At a media availability in Chicago, GOP Presidential candidate Ted Cruz basically blamed Donald Trump for the violence and protests that occurred earlier in the day at a Donald Trump rally at the University of Illinois-Chicago. The rally had to be cancelled due to safety concerns.
Ted Cruz blames the victim. Trump was not able to speak at his rally because of thugs so Trump is to blame, claims Cruz. Ted Crud accuses Donald Trump of “affirmatively encouraging violence” because Trump was prevented from speaking at his own event!
Ted Crud. Marco Rubio is as bad as Ted Crud:
Trump Chicago rally postponed amid scenes of chaos
CHICAGO — Raucous protests shut down a planned Donald Trump rally Friday night before the Republican presidential frontrunner even appeared, sparking scenes of chaos inside and outside the arena that the candidate said infringed his right to freedom of speech.
More than 30 minutes after the event was supposed to start, a representative stepped to the lectern to announce that the event was being canceled for safety considerations.
That set off an eruption of cheers and screams from hundreds of people who revealed themselves to be protesters: “We stopped Trump! We stopped Trump!” they said, jumping, shouting and tearing up Trump signs.
The moment revealed that hundreds of people had slipped into the event portraying themselves as Trump supporters. They instead unveiled protest banners, and some hoisted campaign signs for Bernie Sanders.
The crowd inside the University of Illinois at Chicago pavilion grew contentious long before the originally scheduled 6 p.m. start time, when an entire section of the stadium began protesting.
The intensity of acrimony inside became clear early on as security hauled off one person after another, each time to the screams of the demonstrators.
The anti-Trump contingent, some wearing “Black Lives Matter” shirts, stood and chanted “Let him stay! Let him stay!” as security removed an African American male from the building at another side of the arena. Across the aisles, Trump supporters chanted “USA! USA!” [snip]
Trump’s Republican rival Florida Sen. Marco Rubio also spoke out later Friday about the protests, saying that some Chicago residents are professional protesters and that they don’t have the right to disrupt an event if they don’t like what’s being said. [snip]
“I do think that Mr. Trump needs to own up to the fact that the rhetoric he has used at some of his events has also contributed that you’ve seen in other rallies he’s had. There are consequences to things people say in politics.”
Another Republican presidential candidate, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, also spoke out after the protests.
“The responsibility for that lies with protesters who took violence into their own hands. But in any campaign responsibility starts at the top,” Cruz told CNN.
“Any candidate is responsible for the culture of the campaign. When you have a campaign that disrespects the voters, when you have a campaign that affirmatively encourages violence, when you have a campaign that is facing allegations of physical violence against members of the press, you create an environment that only encourages this sort of nasty discourse,” he said.
The assaults on free speech and the right to assembly are organized by the totalitarian left. These are not random. For Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio to join in with denunciations of Donald Trump instead of in defense of free speech, the right to assembly, and against political correctness means that Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio are not friends of freedom and are on the wrong side of history.
Why is all this happening? Why now?
This assault against Donald J. Trump occurs now because there is a Gettysburg style battle this Tuesday, March 15. Whoever wins the battle wins the war. The odds favor Donald J. Trump and that is why every attempt by the political establishment on both sides of the aisle and from all the institutions of great power in this country now take place.
Consider, labor unions, as in 1968, are terrified the workers are in revolt against them and in favor of Donald J. Trump:
Exclusive: U.S. labor powerhouse to launch anti-Trump ad campaign
The AFL-CIO, the largest U.S. federation of labor unions, will launch digital attack ads targeting Republican front-runner Donald Trump next week as part of a multi-pronged effort to derail the New York billionaire’s bid for the White House and dampen union workers’ enthusiasm for him. [snip]
The officials said the anti-Trump advertising effort would likely expand over the coming months. At the same time, an AFL-CIO affiliate organization will ramp up a door-to-door campaign to undermine the candidate in Ohio and Pennsylvania, key battleground states in the Nov. 8 presidential election.
“Donald Trump has tapped into the very real and understandable anger of working people. But while he says he’s with America’s working people, when you look close, it’s just hot air,” AFL-CIO president Richard Trumka told Reuters. “Donald Trump is nothing but a house of cards, and once we educate people, the house of cards comes crashing down,” he said.
Union leaders are increasingly concerned about Trump’s appeal to labor, typically a stronghold of the Democratic Party, because of his promises to scrap free trade deals that have led to manufacturing job losses in the United States.
There are some signs Trump’s message is resonating beyond the 20 to 30 percent of rank-and-file union members that vote Republican, attracting political independents and even some frustrated Democrats. [snip]
AFL-CIO’s affiliate, Working America, has noticed Trump’s inroads with working-class Americans, and recently sent canvassers to talk to 1,689 likely voters with household incomes of $75,000 or less in Cleveland, Ohio, and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, to learn more about Trump’s appeal.
“Working-class voters are up for grabs this time in a really significant way. These folks need good information, and we’ll fill that gap,” said Karen Nussbaum, executive director of Working America.
In 1968 the trade unions voted Republican.
It’s not just the unions that are worried. Ted Crud and Little Marco are worried that even in the far off Northern Mariana Islands, Trump trumps:
Ralph Torres, the governor of the Northern Mariana Islands, has thrown his support behind Donald Trump, a top party official confirmed Friday, saying the endorsement all but guarantees the mogul will win the territory’s nine delegates next week.
Little Marco is so desperate he is campaigning on behalf of John Kasich:
Rubio urges voters to back Kasich in Ohio to stop Trump
WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — Marco Rubio, desperate to save his presidential campaign in his home state, is adopting the Mitt Romney strategy—asking Republicans hoping to stop Donald Trump to support his rival, John Kasich, in Ohio. [snip]
“A vote for Ted Cruz or John Kasich in Florida is a vote for Donald Trump. Any vote that doesn’t go to me is helping Donald Trump win the 99 delegates that this state will award to the winner.”
Often, too often for many of our readers, we have made the honest observation that “Hillary2016 is not a campaign; Hillary2016 is an embarrassment.” Our statement is now undermined as Little Marco and Ted Cruz have demonstrated that “an embarrassment” is not the lowest a campaign can fall. Little Marco and Ted Crud no longer have anything that resembles a campaign. Cruz2016 and Rubio2016 are scam operations to thwart the intent of the voters and wrest the electoral franchise from the people, to corrupt power brokers:
Donald Trump is the only Republican candidate with a realistic chance of winning the 1,237 delegates necessary to claim the party’s presidential nomination, according to a POLITICO analysis. [snip]
The outlook for his rivals is grim — there is almost no way they can get to the magic number.
Dr. Ben Carson knows what side he is on:
Carson rushed to endorse Trump, he told WABC Radio host Rita Cosby on Friday, because he feared that GOP elites’ last-ditch efforts to stop him might succeed.
“I would call them disgusting and despicable, and I just hope that we can get some real leadership and not only the Republican Party, I mean Democrats, too,” Carson said. Asked why he endorsed Trump so quickly, he said that “seeing the intensity of activities by the political establishment against him, I began to realize that there was a good chance that they would succeed in derailing him and if that happened basically we’ve give the country over to socialists.”
“There’s no way I could sit there in good conscience and let that happen,” Carson said.
They can’t win against Donald Trump and his 2016 “silent majority”. That is why Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio along with Big Media and the political establishment side with totalitarian street thugs to silence Donald J. Trump and deprive him and his supporters of their free speech and associational rights in Chicago.
As in 1968 the answer from Trump’s “silent majority” supporters will be delivered at the ballot box in Florida, Ohio, Illinois, North Carolina, Missouri, and the Northern Mariana Islands.
