Virtue Signalers Arabian Hypocrisy — Mohammed bin Salman, who is Saudi Arabia’s crown prince, has been solidly implicated in the Oct. 2 murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi and President Trump is turning a blind eye.
Trump points out that it is America first and that the Iranian mullahs — Arabia’s mortal enemy — are the real threat. He also says the Arabian oil production is nice.
As expected, the famously inconsistent virtue signalers are outraged.
“I think that’s one of the most amoral statements any president of the United States has ever uttered,” said Congressman Gerry Connolly (D-VA).
Richard North Patterson on Yahoo calls President Trump an accessory to Khahoggi’s murder.
So where were these people when Obama was propping up the oppressive mullahs? They were defending him. They defended Obama on Cuba, and on Venezuela and on Libya. They defended him on the Muslim Brotherhood.
Do we even have to mention Hillary and Benghazi and how they protected her?
Hey have you heard of Meng Hongwei? Of course not. He is a Chinese politician who was president of Interpol until Oct. 7. He was forced to resign by Chinese authorities and then disappeared. It has been revealed he is in custody in the PRC. His wife is upset about.
Nobody else seems to be.
The virtue-signalers, though, are upset about President Trump’s hardline with the Chinese.
Twitter Hypocritical H8 Site — We published a post Nov. 5 celebrating the return to the internet of free-speech defender Gab.
Gab, a Twitter alternative, was kicked off the web by its hosting provider Joyent on Oct. 29 for having allowed Robert Bowers to post. Bowers murdered 11 persons two days before during Shabbat services at the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh. He also wounded seven others, including four police officers.
Anyway outrage ensued; Gab was removed and virtue was signaled.
Which brings us to the latest regarding Twitter. Saudi prince and billionaire Alwaleed bin Talal was a major investor in Twitter. In 2015, he owned 34.9 million shares in it which put him ahead of CEO and co-founder Jack Dorsey.
Alwaleed was arrested in the Kingdom on Nov. 4, 2017 and held for three months with freedom coming as part of a financial deal with the higher ups in the Saudi family.
What was the deal? Did it involve something with Twitter? Did it involve something leading to the Oct. 2 death at the Saudi embassy in Turkey of his friend journalist Jamal Kashoggi?
Soon after Kashoggi’s brutal death it was revealed that Saudi Arabia has created a massive Twitter “troll army” to sway public opinion especially in the Mideast.
And today (Nov. 7) it was reported that journalist Turki Bin Abdul Aziz Al-Jasser was tortured to death in a Saudi jail for criticizing the ruling family via a secret Twitter account. How did the tyrants learn of the account? Via spies at Twitter’s regional headquarter in Dubai.
How many infiltrated with Saudi spies is Twitter? How much do they interfere with our elections? Sounds like a dangerous H8 site to us. Perhaps Twitter should be banned for the web.
That last sentence was sarcasm but it illustrates the poison of political correctness and the hypocrisy of virtue-signaling double standards.
The free speech social networking alternative to Twitter was kicked off the web by hosting provider Joyent on Oct. 29 after it was revealed that Pittsburgh synagogue massacre suspect Robert Bowers was a poster on the site.
An example of Bowers’ postings is to the right.
The Oct. 27 massacre left 11 dead and seven wounded, including four police officers.
Anyway, outrage occurred and GAB got blamed for inspiring the evil.
Cynics might say it was just an attempt by Silicon Valley powerbrokers to maintain an hegemony on the flow of information and squelch a potential competitor while it was still in the cradle. It is not as though Twitter never served as a conduit of hate, after all.
CIA Intercepted Whistleblower Messages — See where the CIA under Director John Brennan intercepted messages from whistleblowers to Congress?
Not if you get your news from the traditional media you haven’t.
Thank God for President Trump. We dodged a bullet.
Thank God for Sharyl Attkisson too. She is one of the last few journalists to actually work in the traditional media.
Also we got another tip from our Facebook friend that James Polite a New York City Hall employee and a Democrat political activist who had been profiled by the New York Times was responsible for writing anti-semitic slurs on synagogue in that city and blaming it on Republicans. The 2017 New York Times profile described Polite as a gay, black man.
Hypocrisy, thuggery and lies are all the left have left.
Democrats Hate Women, Really — New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy gave a high-paying state education job to a politically connected Democrat accused of raping a campaign volunteer.
Did you hear about it?
Of course not. Murphy is a Democrat. The establishment media turns a blind eye to the cruel misogyny common in the donkey party until circumstances compel them otherwise.
The accused (#BelieveWomen, right?) rapist is Albert J. Alvarez who until Oct. 2 had a $140,000-a-year job as chief of staff of the New Jersey Schools Development Authority. He was forced to quit after The Wall Street Journal ran a story on how former campaign volunteer Katie Brennan claimed Alvarez sexually assaulted her after he drove her home from a campaign gathering in Jersey City in July 2017. Alvarez was then director of Latino and Muslim community outreach for Murphy’s campaign.
Mrs. Brennan went to the hospital, told her husband and friend what happened and reported the incident to police the next day. For some strange reason the Hudson County Prosecutor’s Office declined to prosecute.
Mrs. Brennan told the Murphy transition team about the assault. It didn’t matter, Alvarez got the sweet state job anyway.
She reported what happened to the governor’s chief counsel, who referred the incident to an ethics official who referred it to the state Attorney General’s Office. On June 1, Mrs. Brennan emailed Murphy and his wife saying she wanted to discuss a sensitive matter. Murphy indicated his administration was “on it.” He certainly was. Alvarez stayed.
It was only when The Wall Street Journal — one of the few honest old media publications — started writing about it that Alvarez was forced out.
We wonder what New Jersey Democrat Sen. Cory “Sparatcus” Booker thinks. He was a big #BelieveWomen guy a few weeks ago. We know what New Jersey Sen. Bob Menendez thinks. He thinks Mrs. Brennan is too old for him.
Did you hear how the husband of Missouri Democrat Sen. Claire McCaskill brutally abused and beat his ex-wife? #BelieveWomen, right? Yeah, there is a police record. The complaint was made by Joseph Shepard’s daughter who was trying to stop the assault.
How about the sexual assault claim against Ohio Democrat Sen. Sherrod Brown? The accuser isn’t giving her name or providing a lot of corroboration but hey #BelieveWomen right? At least that’s what Brown was saying a couple of weeks ago. By the way, Brown’s wife accused him of beating her when filing divorce papers in 1986. #BelieveHer, right?
Then there is Democrat Minnesota Congressman Keith Ellison, who is deputy chair of the Democrat National Committee. He’s now running for Minnesota Attorney General. His ex-girlfriend’s son posted Twitter that Ellison brutally beat his mom, which his mom then confirmed.
#BelieveWomen? Not if they are accusing a Democrat during an election.
Fauxcahontas Warren No Cher Song — Sen. Elizabeth Warren seems strangely concerned about the Nov. 6 election in which she faces Republican Geoffrey G. Diehl and independent V. A. Shiva “The Real Indian” Ayyadurai.
The blue-eyed, once-blond Massachusetts Democrat has felt compelled to take a DNA test to lay to rest allegations that she is not part Native American as she claimed in order to advance in academia. She ended up with a $430,000 salary at Harvard and a net worth of $8.75 million as of three years ago.
Anyway, the DNA test showed she was between 0.1 percent to 1.56 percent Injun, which even at the highest percentage would not grant her any tribal status or put her in a racially protected group.
Adam Schiff Pedophile Or Don’t Throw Stones — Congressman Adam Schiff (D-CA28), who is one of the faces of the Democrat Party, ought to be very careful about throwing stones.
On yesterday’s (Sept 20) Morning Joe show, he said regarding Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh that the GOP is OK with “putting someone who committed attempted rape on the Supreme Court of the United States.”
Really? A 36-year-old allegation rife with vagueness and inconsistencies and with a strong taint of politics equals guilt?
What If Christine Blasey Ford Is Lying? — The Republicans are treating with kid gloves Christine Blasey Ford who claims that Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh groped her at a high school party 36 years ago, something that Kavanaugh unequivocally denies.
“Dr. Ford shouldn’t be threatened or insulted & she deserves to be heard. I expect my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to be respectful & treat this situation with the sensitivity it deserves . . .,” Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) tweeted.
But what if clinical psychologist Ford is a bad person? What if she is cynically lying for a political agenda, indifferent to any lives she ruins? Why is this possibility apparently being rejected?
We’ll grant that threats and insults are never appropriate or productive but it is foolish to deny that great big elephant sitting there in the room. It is highly possible, probable actually, that she is lying through her teeth to advance a political cause.
Yes, women lie and ruin men’s lives.
In fairness to Grassley, he seems to be seething under the skin. Here is a letter he sent to ranking Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee.
In April 2014, famed billionaire pedophile Jeffrey Epstein donated $2,600 to the campaign of Gwendolyn Beck, an independent candidate in Virginia’s 8th congressional district. He also gave $5,000 to a political action committee controlled by Ms. Beck, who finished a distant third in November’s general election.
Ms. Beck was not a novice to politics, of course. In 2010, she was date of Sen. Robert Menendez (D-NJ) to a dinner at the Obama White House.
While Menendez never faced charges concerning this claim, he was charged with bribery and related crimes after accepting gifts — including a stay at an exclusive Dominican Republic resort — from Florida businessman Salomon Melgen and allegedly pressuring that nation into giving Melgen’s company a port security contract. He also allegedly got visas for several of Melgen’s girlfriends.
His trial ended with a hung jury and prosecutors declined to try again after the Supreme Court struck down Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell’s bribery conviction concerning unclarity as to what was an official act.
