Media focus on non-election issues like Khashoggi indicate a bankruptcy of ideas

Less than 3 weeks before elections, and all the oxygen being taken up by the fate of a non-American disappearing in a foreign country can only indicate one thing…

…the Left has no ideas or plans they can run with to focus their campaigning, and the FakeNews media, desperate to hide their bankrupt agenda, flail away at non-issues.

Nolte nails it at Breitbart…

“These things happen pretty much every day in that part of the world…we are being conned… Conned by the establishment media with a shiny piece of fake news.”

What else can explain so much focus on a terrorist-supporter’s disappearance when so many other American issues need to be addressed before the November midterms?

Enough with the faux ‘journalist-killed’ hysteria. Jamal Khashoggi is a member of the Muslim Brotherhood, and supports Hamas, both groups noted terrorist organizations.

C’mon, Democrats/Media/Left…where do you stand on immigration and the economy?

Californians beware: they’re targetting Prop 13

If Californians think the gas-tax was bad, they’ll’ bust a gut when they hear …liberal activists…are gathering signatures to place a massive tax hike on the 2020 ballot.

Looks like the initiative being proposed targets commercial properties at this point, but is there any doubt private property won’t be the next step in the politicians’ greed?

Just one more reason to vote (R) in the midterms, people.

If media Benghazi coverage equaled Khashoggi coverage, Romney would’ve been elected president in 2012

FACT: Over a 12-hr period, Libyan terror groups attacked Americans in Benghazi, killed 4 Americans…but Obama slept, resting up for a next-day Vegas fundraiser. Military assets and drones in the region could’ve been deployed, if Obama ok’d it…but didn’t.

The media yawned.

Understand…the first person died an hour or two into the attacks. The last two died in the 11th hour of the attack. Finally, 40-some Americans were saved from a similar fate, 12 hrs after the attacks started, by civilian American security subcontractors.

There were pre-assault activities that indicated what was coming – roads being blocked off, armed groups assembling, etc. Arguably, at the onset, if even one F-16 had been deployed for a fly-over, it would have discouraged, slowed up, or warned off assailants.

A military drone with assault weaponry could have de-fused the situation, but only Barack Obama could’ve authorized such measures on foreign soil…yet he went to bed.

Stevens, Smith, Doherty, and Woods were killed because of his ineptitude.

How could a collective media yawn over such malfeasance by an American president? 

Fast forward to the American media frenzy today, over:

  1. a SAUDI citizen, who
  2. may or may not have disappeared (no proof, to date),
  3. going into a Saudi embassy IN TURKEY, AND
  4. may or may not have been detained-tortured-killed (no proof, to date)…

…then ask yourself – REALLY?

Obama refused to deploy military because he was facing re-election, had claimed the War on Terror was no longer an issue, and didn’t want the optics of contrary fact.

If the media savaged Obama over 4 dead Americans, on foreign soil, the way they’re savaging President Trump now because of a Saudi whose fate (on foreign soil) is still unknown, the American electorate would’ve seen him for the cause of American dead…

…and voted accordingly – Mitt Romney would’ve been elected.

That aside, lack of proof on this guy Khashoggi’s fate notwithstanding…

…who honestly thinks an  American president is responsible for FOREIGN citizens…

…on FOREIGN soil?

Only FakeNews can try to make such a claim.

Continued LYING about GOP health plans doesn’t make the lies true

Short argument regarding Democrat slams against the Republican plan: Lying doesn’t make it true – the GOP plan doesn’t take away protections for pre-existing conditions.

Of course, that won’t stop Democrats from lying…it’s what they do.

As this late September IBD article notes “…the attacks both exaggerate the problem and distort the Republican’s approach to health care reform. (But) Everyone else already had this protection. State and federal laws already mandated that large group plans couldn’t charge more or deny coverage for someone because of a pre-existing condition. States had similar laws in place for small group plans.”

(Bold, underline emphasis added)

The only consumers who may have been adversely affected are covered by a risk pool built into the GOP plan, but, OOPS…the Democrats forget to mention that little fact.

As the article notes “Republicans’ ObamaCare replacement plan included protections for those with pre-existing conditions. They just had a different — and we’d argue, far better and less costly — approach. Whatever anyone thinks of the Republican alternatives, it’s clear that ObamaCare’s approach is failing. Its rules and mandates led to double-digit price increases year after year, which have priced millions of families out of the insurance market altogether.” (emphasis added)

Bottom Line? Yes – the GOP plan did away w-O’care ‘p-e-c’ coverage, but ADDED AN ALTERNATIVE…which of course is conveniently ignored by deceitful politicians lying to get some votes. Families priced out of the insurance market altogether by Obamacare far exceeds the few affected (but, still covered) by alternative GOP plans.

Double-digit rate hikes make Obamacare the bad guy here…not the Republican plans.

But don’t let that get in the way of Democrat messaging.

Democrats responsible for House IT scandal don’t deserve to be re-elected

Why this is being covered up is a mystery, but there’s no doubt Pakistani information tech aides serving 40+ House Democrats were proven to have unlawfully accessed and downloaded sensitive media, including House Intel committee data…yet aren’t charged.

The Daily Caller led the charge in reporting on this, and an American Thinker article by Frank Miniter sums up the unsettling non-interest of what should be a huge story…

…and a HUGE reason why Democrats shouldn’t be trusted on national security issues.

(And, we can’t help but ask…why the non-interest?)

On Khashoggi, Rush Limbaugh channels BlueCollar…

On today’s show, Rush Limbaugh stated what BlueCollar posted early this morning.

We questioned FakeNews HYPOCRISY of their disingenuous ‘outrage’ over a Saudi who may have been ill-treated in Turkey, but none over American deaths in Benghazi.

Bottom Line? It’s to try once more to collar Pres. Trump with the blame.

Thin gruel…when compared to the very real blame Obama deserves in Benghazi.

They go crazy over an as-yet unverified act against a Saudi…

…but ‘crickets’ over an extremely verifiable failure that resulted in 4 American deaths.

Disgusting doesn’t quite capture the epic hypocrisy of the media.

And, seriously – when did we start believing anything Turkey has to say?

We’re not ignoring that Saudi Arabia violates human rights, but so does Turkey…

…especially as they’ve spurned secularism and gone to the radical side of Islam, and are fighting to wrest Middle East control away from…you guessed it…Saudi Arabia.

So, as the media screams about ‘evidence’…remember it’s produced by Turkey.
