Desparate Klobuchar Conjures John McCain and Dictators for Attention

It must be getting pretty hard to stand out in the massive 2020 democratic field.

Now that the democrats have populated their 2020 field with two dozen candidates for president, the silly and salacious behavior is set to begin.

Standing out in such an enormous gaggle of progressive is going to prove difficult for the democrats, especially now that Joe Biden’s eventual announcement has seemingly sucked all of the air out of the room.  The former Vice President is currently sitting well above the rest of his field, besting his nearest competitor Bernie Sanders by double digits in recent polls.

So now the left will turn ever more vitriolic and bombastic in order to seek attention.

Amy Klobuchar has already gone this route, allegedly quoting the late John McCain at a recent campaign stop.

In her remarks before supporters in Iowa, Klobuchar recounted how she sat beside McCain and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) during President Trump’s inaugural address

“I sat on that stage between Bernie and John McCain, and John McCain kept reciting to me names of dictators during that speech because he knew more than any of us what we were facing as a nation,” said the White House hopeful, the Huffington Post reported on Saturday. “He understood it. He knew because he knew this man more than any of us did.”

McCain’s daughter Meghan, who is currently working as a television host for The View, fired back at Klobuchar via Twitter.

McCain, although a republican, had butted heads with President Trump on several occasions, quite publicly.  This fact seems to have given the democrats a reason to praise and revere the late Senator and veteran, much to the dismay of those who knew him best.

New Survey Reveals 55 Percent Think Media Is ‘Corrupt’ And ‘Exaggerates’ News

Published

on

The mainstream media in America has become infamous for rejecting any sort of objective standard of ethics when it comes to their news coverage, opting instead to be a propaganda arm for the Democratic Party and the progressive movement as a whole. For a lot of folks, such a statement probably seems like a tinfoil hat kind of theory, a ridiculous claim that surely only exists on the fringes of our civilized, modern society. These individuals would be dead wrong. A new survey has revealed that 55 percent of those surveyed believe that the media is corrupt and that they exaggerate news stories to fit a specific agenda or talking point. Here’s more from The Washington Examiner: According to a survey done for SeniorList, a medical device firm focused on older Americans, 55% of Americans believe that the media is “corrupt.” https://twitter.com/SenMcSallyAZ/status/1218380597678288899 In addition, many, especially Republicans, believe that the media exaggerates stories while some Democrats believe reporters minimize issues, a sign that the political polarization in media has deepened. “Republicans were much more likely than Democrats to think the media overblow issues on a large scale, indicating a more conservative trend of questioning the mainstream media,” said the survey analysis, citing Russian interference in elections, the treatment of illegal immigrants at the border, and racism. “The repetitive programming on networks and websites and the emphasis of the media to pump the news cycle with the same stories can create burnout, causing many to question the overall quality of the news,” said the survey analysis. The survey concluded that the answer to all of this is to get your news from sources and check facts out for yourself. It also suggested readers learn to be aware of the bias in modern reporting and to read up on which websites have…

Tulsi Gabbard Launches $50 Million Defamation Lawsuit Against Hillary Over ‘Russian Asset’ Comment

Published

on

Democratic presidential candidate Rep. Tulsi Gabbard is quickly proving that while she is most assuredly on the left politically, she’s also got a lot in common with those on the right as well. Like a mutual disdain for former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton. Clinton targeted Gabbard for some of her more centrist policies last year, stating that Gabbard is a “Russian asset.” Well, much like President Trump, Gabbard isn’t afraid of a fight. In fact, she’s now suing Hillary for $50 million in a defamation lawsuit over the statement. Here’s more from Fox News: During an October 2019 interview with the podcast Campaign HQ With David Plouffe, Clinton suggested the 2020 presidential candidate was “the favorite of the Russians” and “a Russian asset.” Gabbard insists these statements have no grounds in reality, and that Clinton knew or should have known this at the time. “Rather than facts or reliable evidence, Clinton’s basis for the Defamatory Statements was one or both of: (a) her own imagination; or (b) extremely dubious conspiracy theories that any reasonable person (and especially Clinton, a former United States Senator and Secretary of State) would know to be fanciful, wholly unverified, and inherently and objectively unreliable,” said the lawsuit, filed Wednesday in Manhattan federal court. Clinton did not specifically name Gabbard in her remarks, but strongly implied she was referring to her. The complaint points out that when asked if she was referring to Gabbard, Clinton spokesman Nick Merrill responded, “If the nesting doll fits,” a reference to Russian dolls. Gabbard’s complaint states in no uncertain terms that “Tulsi is not a Russian asset,” and that neither Russia nor anyone else “controls her or her presidential campaign.” To the contrary, it plays up her history of public service, from her time in the Army National Guard…
