Universal pulls ads of movie where liberal elites hunt deplorables

Universal Pictures has pulled ads of movie, ‘The Hunt‘ – where liberal elites hunt deplorables for sport – in the wake of the recent shootings.

A liberal character in the movie can be heard asking, “Did anyone see what our ratf***er-in-chief just did?” No guessing who he was referring to.

Another responds, “At least the hunt’s coming up. Nothing better than going out to the manor and slaughtering a dozen deplorables.

Apparently it’s satire. Hollywood is always a great reference point for hypocrisy.

Political shots fired. Media misses the target as usual

Never put it past the media or the political class to maximize tragedy for their own personal gain. It is truly sick. Beto O’Rourke blamed the shootings in El Paso and Dayton to Trump’s hatred being on a par with the Third Reich. Seriously? Congresswoman & ‘The Squad” member Rashid Tlaib lashed out at Ivanka Trump for expressing sorrow for the attacks by making attacks on her father’s “hate agenda and racism“, which is a touch ironic coming from an anti-Semite and a minority that has somehow overcome this imaginary racism and hatred to be elected to represent America on a national level. Do Trump’s “thoughts and prayers” solve anything? No.

Sadly even if Trump were to ban guns, the liberal left would give him zero credit for it. So what does he stand to gain? That isn’t an excuse to do nothing either. How is that within several hours of these shootings we have full dossiers on the perpetrators – political affiliation, tweets of racist rhetoric and photos from their childhood? How quickly acquaintances of perpetrators all knew these people were capable of massacres…

One shooter had tweeted support for Trump. The other was a registered Democrat. What does this actually prove? Do all 63m Trump voters and all 66m odd Hillary Clinton voters to a man and woman share a certain slice of DNA with these abhorrent individuals? Does skin colour actually matter? To shoot up a Walmart or other public area requires a special kind of lunacy. These two represent 0.00000154% of those voters in the 2016 election.

If so much information can be garnered within such a short time, why don’t regulators clamp down on checks so the system has a higher chance of catching potential loonies?

Unfortunately these shootings will be forgotten in a few weeks as per usual and Americans will get on with their daily lives. This is nothing but a political football. The reality is that the people most affected (the murdered & their families) are ranked last as debate gets stifled by politicians looking to maximize exposure from the tragedy. Remember you’re a racist, bigoted Nazi if you want to protect 2A. Not a very good starting point to solve a problem.

Yet the media can’t move away from the “if it bleeds it leads” narrative. It jumps on the finger pointing blame game to recover decimated rankings.

Yet what of the stats of gun crime in America?

There are 50,000 (mostly individual) gun stores in the US. 95% of firearm related murders are committed with handguns. Statistically America would be better off banning sales of pistols rather than AR-15s. Say automatic rifles are banned from today. What will change? Handgun murders will move closer to 100%. Good luck buying back 300m+ guns in America.

According to the Crime Prevention Research Center, murders in US appear to be very concentrated: 54% of US counties (representing 11% of the population) in 2014 had zero murders, 2% of counties made up 51% of the murders, ironically in states with the strictest gun controls – Illinois, NY and California.

Yet America has had decades of periods where governments had majorities in both houses and nothing was done on gun control. We’ve experienced Orlando, Las Vegas, Sandy Hook, Columbine, Parkland, Fort Hood, El Paso, Dayton, San Bernardino, Virginia Tech, Geneva County, Aurora…the list goes on.

Moves by sporting goods stores like Dick’s to ban AR sales and raise the age limit to 21yo looked sensible from the outside. However they had multiple massacres over decades to make that call. The current CEO has been in charge since 1984. Why the u-turn in his conscience? Indeed the company did temporarily suspend sales of ARs after Sandy Hook in 2012 but kept retailing them at the company’s Field & Stream outlets before selling them again at Dick’s. Inconsistent.

Recall the Parkland, Florida school shooting. At the time media outlets went all guns blazing on the National Rifle Association (NRA), CM warned that it most likely would cause a knee jerk reaction in the opposite direction. We speculated that the hike in membership fee likely reflected a surge in members. As tragic as the Parkland massacre was, CM said that ‘shaming’ NRA members en masse would only make them dig in deeper. As it turns out searches for NRA membership surged 4900% immediately after the tragedy. People are sick and tired of being bullied into feeling guilty about things they haven’t caused.

39,773 died from gun related death in America in 2018. The highest number in 20 years. Statistically speaking ‘massacres’ accounted for only 106 deaths in 2018 or 0.27% of the total. Yet media attention focuses on it.

To put it into perspective the total number of overdose deaths involving heroin from 2002 to 2015 jumped 6.2-fold in the US. Automobiles killed around 32,000 people last year or a little over 2x that of heroin overdoses. When adding non-methadone opioids (illicit fentanyl) overdose that number surged to 20,000, a 33% YoY jump on 2014 and 5.9x 2002. Why is it happening? The problem for many prescription painkiller users is that once their bottle ends, the addiction doesn’t stop meaning many switch to heroin to get the same ‘opioid’ hit.

We armchair politicians can sit back and shake our heads at America. Yet until there is a will of the people to change the laws, expect more massacres to happen. Name an American politician that is willing to repeal 2A as a cornerstone election campaign policy. There is your answer. Will the Democrat nominees raise their hands for the repeal of 2A? Safer to raise hands at free healthcare for illegal immigrants. 2A is toxic to touch. Sadly innocent people are dying for no reason.

#KamalaHarrisDestroyed

The circular firing squad in full effect. Poor old Kamala Harris didn’t know what hit her. The Dems have to show a united face if they want to defeat Trump. No surprise to see the questions being asked go straight down the identity politics line.

Iran & the media vs Trump

So Iran has yanked the chain of the British. While a British ship prevented an Iranian tanker headed to Syria from reaching its destination in violation of sanctions, the Iranians returned the favour, albeit without legal pretense.

It is easy for Iran to take advantage of the political malaise in Britain but it would be unwise to risk antagonizing Trump beyond this because there will be no red lines with invisible ink unlike his predecessor.

To Iran’s benefit is the Trump hating media. No doubt they’ll make much noise saying that the ayatollahs are paragons of peace and defenseless against American might. If a saber is rattled then it’s nothing more than chest beating and Trump will only look to whack a ‘shithole’ country to please his base.

Pretend for a second it was Obama. If an ally had a civilian ship boarded by armed Iranian Revolutionary Guard troops in violation of international law, would we protest if Obama stood up and warned Iran to step off or face military intervention? The media would embrace it.

Iran is itching to push Trump’s resolve. It’s deep involvement in Yemen, Syria, Lebanon and Iraq is not lost on anyone with their eyes open. This proxy war has been ongoing for decades.

Don’t be surprised if the Russians start shipping some more S-400 Triumf SAM systems to Iran in order to level the playing field a bit. The Iranians already have the upgraded P-270 Moskits and P-800 Oniks anti ship missiles. If you see America attack Iran, these batteries will be first on this list to be take out as they are virtually unstoppable once launched. Can one imagine the implications of a US carrier sunk in the Gulf? That would cause a massive reprisal which would move this beyond a skirmish. Buy Gold.

Don’t forget Iran is Rosoborenexport’s second largest export client. That will be proper collusion, not the nonsense dreamed up by the Dems at election time which even if true would wilt in the shadow of Google’s meddling.

This has the potential to turn very ugly. It all rests on Iran’s shoulders. It’s not the Iranian people who are a problem. It’s the regime.

Anti-ICE protestors take down US flag and hoist Mexican flag in its place

Nikki Haley said it best,

Watching this video of anti ICE protestors bringing down the American flag and raising the Mexican flag. There are no words for why the Democrats are staying silent on this. If this is your way to winning an election, fire your strategist. This is disgusting. Love your country. And if you don’t like what is happening then tell the members of Congress to get to work and fix it.”

If these protestors hate America so much, why don’t they move to Mexico? To raise its flag surely suggests living south of the border must be superior? Yet more conditional citizens. If they hate the laws, then look to change them rather than disrespect those they disagree with.

If America is so hateful, why are so many still trying to get in illegally?

CM thinks Nikki Haley will be the 2024 candidate for president. With stunts like this, her odds look better and better.

Tarzan of the Ocean

This brave member of the US Coast Guard leapt onto the top of a drug smuggling submarine used by the cartels and politely knocked on the hatch for a quick chat.

For all those who disrespect the flag, here is another good reason why they shouldn’t. Brave souls putting their own lives on the line to keep a country safe.

This chap helped seize $232m worth of narcotics.

If the Trump administration are Nazis, why are so many trying to break into such an oppressive regime?

What is it with the left that keeps at this line that the Trump administration supports Nazis and Nazi causes? If that were true, why are so many illegal immigrants still risking life and limb to break into such an oppressive regime? If the left knew their history, the Jews and other untermenschen went out of their way to escape persecution. They weren’t making a b-line to seek out the SS or the Einsatzgruppen to seek salvation.

One can be sure if the left ever visited a proper concentration camp (CM has been to Auschwitz I, Birkenau (Auschwitz II), Treblinka, Sobibor, Majdanek, Dachau and Sachsenhausen) they could never draw such a conclusion. These places are gruesome reminders of institutional murder. CBP camps are nothing by comparison and any attempts to make an equivalence is downright insulting.

That didn’t stop 29yo Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez calling detainment centres on the border “concentration camps.” Given most of those making the journey are connected via smart phones, they aren’t making the journey blindly. They assume all the well known risks of using traffickers – sexual assault and kidnapping included.

Make all the arguments for visa overstays being the bulk of illegal immigration claims but people need only open their minds to the truth that the racist, hateful and fascist US is still preferable to their homeland. Otherwise why overstay? No logic staying where one is not wanted. The idea is to flee oppression, not swarm around a fascist honeypot.

Remember when Trump said he’d ship illegals to sanctuary cities when Democrats held their resolve over funding border security? Why weren’tsanctuary cities, all publicly open arms about accepting illegals, balking at receiving busloads of them? The great irony is that a growing number of illegal immigrants are choosing to move OUT of sanctuary cities. In 2007, 7.7mn (63.1%) lived in the 20 largest sanctuary metros to 6.5mn (60.7%) in 2016 according to Pew. During that time 1.5m illegal immigrants were deported (12.2mn ->10.7mn).

Is that why Democrat presidential candidates were on stage raising their hand in support of providing free healthcare to illegal immigrants? Not even being a liberal led sanctuary city seems enough these days to convince illegals to stay. The out of control feces crisis in San Francisco is enough for anyone to question living in a sanctuary city, illegal or not. Is that what “free mobility” in a totalitarian society looks like?

How much harder left can these candidates turn? Even Bernie Sanders is looking positively centrist…Joe Biden looks like an unhinged right wing nut job vs the likes of Harris, Booker and Warren. “Comprendes, amigo?

Now AOC is on record screaming on Twitter with,

I just left the 1st CBP facility. I see why the CBP officers were being so physically & sexually threatening towards me. Officers were keeping women in cells w/ no water & had told them to drink out of the toilets…This was them on their GOOD behavior in front of members of Congress.

Reports are coming that AOC hurled abuse at the CBP officers. Undoubtedly there will be CCTV footage to confirm or deny these allegations.

No one is arguing that conditions are ideal. They are not supposed to be. It doesn’t condone any human rights violations but at the same time, in many cases the result is self-imposed. Honduras and Mexico are democracies not in a state of war, civil or otherwise. These people are fleeing for better lives, not for their lives. It is a big distinction and the US taxpayer is not obliged to sponsor anyone who thinks open borders are a right. If illegal immigrants didn’t try to cross the border illegally it is likely they wouldn’t be in a camp, much less locked in a cell.

Ana Garcia Carias, wife of Honduran President Juan Orlando Hernandez, said, “Stay in the country and let’s look for solutions to support you.” She visited the US border and said that she didn’t recommend her citizens go to the US undocumented. Smart woman.

CM has no qualms helping those in genuine need of asylum. CM has a problem with those that conflate issues and use comparisons to Nazism as a reason to shame others into accepting their dogma of economic refugees. Feel free to decide for yourself when looking at the data published by ICE. No wonder feelings matter more than facts.

With all the free stuff thrown at potential voters by the Democrat nominees don’t expect facts to matter. After all if Americans who didn’t go to college have to pay off the debts of those that did, perhaps we should ask the homeless to pay for those who took out mortgages.
