A Soaring Democratic Primary: A Thing of Beauty to Behold

It is a thing of beauty to behold. Conservatives and other Republicans are flustered and bemused by a corrupt and mendacious Left Mediacracy that continuously — not just continually — distorts and defames Republican views, ideas, and personalities while granting succor, cover, and sanctuary to Left Democrats no matter how vile (Linda Sarsour, Al Sharpton) and corrupt (the Kavanaugh hearings) they be. However, now is Democrat Primary Season, and it is a thing of beauty to see the Left media come to life in a spurt of honesty and professionalism, as the Fourth Estate briefly emerge from ten years’ hibernation to dig honestly into the candidacies of a murder of Democrat crows running for President.

The Left Mediacracy gave Obama a pass on the Reverend Wright, Bill Ayers, Tony Rezko, and the entire false narrative of the Obama story. Only after the Wasted Obama Decade did we get to see the photo of Obama smiling with buddy Louis Farrakhan. No one ever explored how Obama got into Columbia and Harvard Law, how he ever got named President of Harvard Law Review without ever publishing a piece of scholarship. Next, they mostly whitewashed Hillary through Benghazi, the emails, the Comey unilateral exoneration, the mock investigation that saw all key witnesses granted immunity from prosecution and that allowed a bunch of them to sit in on depositions and interviews. Likewise, they never looked into Bernie’s very capitalist ownership of three houses and private-jet-setting in the name of socialism. All the Dems got free passes. Eric Holder. Loretta Lynch. Lois Lerner. Yet, from the moment that Donald Trump was elected President — and well before — they have devoted all their focus on exposing Trump, the recording with Billy Bush in the trailer, Stormy Daniels, Michael Cohen, Omarosa, searching for the collusion that never was, highlighting every Mueller-related conviction that has nothing to do with the Special Counsel’s actual assignment, wondering about Melania’s whereabouts after a surgery and seeking to decipher hidden meanings in the blouses, shirts, or jackets she wears.

Suddenly — Praise the L-rd! — the First Amendment-protected dead have come to life, an inspiration even to those theological skeptics who doubt the prophecies of the Good Book. These bones live — even without Fosamax, Prolia, or Reclast! What accounts for the sudden change? Is the hibernated bear so hungry after ten years sleeping in the cave, with not even Plato alongside to share a few good syllogisms, that the emerged Left Media-koala even would eat Boo-Boo, Yogi’s perennial ally and sidekick? To mix metaphors, has the leopard changed its spots? No.

To get to the grizzly truth, what now is happening is that each new Beto, Princess Speaking Bull, Janus (i.e., two-faced) Gillibrand, Spartacus, and Binder-Hurling Klobuchar who enters the field threatens the successful candidacy of one of the others. To protect Breadline Bernie, the Left media need to take down the other socialists who threaten him and all the not-too-socialist. Cory Booker is a threat to Kamala Harris’s African American uniqueness, even though she has no African ancestry whatsoever (parents from Jamaica and India), and she threatens his inside track as a person of color. Beer-guzzling Liz Warren is the only Indian in the race, unless you count Harris’s maternal lineage from India. Klobuchar has a pretty clear path for the Psychopath Vote, which is becoming an increasingly valued constituency among the Democrats now that they are pushing for felons to enjoy the franchise before stealing the ballots and kidnapping the poll watchers. Master Beto and Julian Castro are in each other’s way as they contend for the coveted Texas Hispanic vote, even though Master Beto actually is pure Irish and Welsh White Male Privilege.

If you write for the Associated Press, Reuters, CNN, ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC, PBS, the Washington Post, New York Times, and their ilk, odds are overwhelming that you are a politically biased Left-liberal Democrat. Even WaPo admits that only seven percent of journalists identify as “Republican” — and since those “Republicans” include the likes of Jennifer Rubin, George Will, Michael Gerson, and Ana Fake Fingernails, that leaves basically… fifteen or twenty souls at Fox News, a few more at Fox Business, some at the Wall Street Journal, those of us here and at a few similar online publications of similar serious substance, and a token at each of several other outlets. Given the preponderance of Mediacracy Left bias, the media do not do the kind of digging that Woodward and Bernstein did to take down Nixon or that the Boston Globe did to embarrass the Catholic Church. Many will agree that the journalist investigations regarding the Watergate break-in and the abuse of young people at the hands of trusted clergy indeed were valuable social contributions. However, the one-sided targeting of religious icons and institutions, and of conservative political leaders but not liberals, distorts society’s perspective and warps reality. It contributes to the rise of socialism among college and Millennial ignoramuses, who are not really as cerebrally stupid as they are bat-blind ignorant from decades of being bombarded with only one side of truth. So the Left media persuasively expose outliers who embarrass the Right, while leaving Left embarrassments unscathed and uninvestigated, creating a false narrative and warped inference that the Left possesses a refined purity, presumably emerging from a purer world view. In fact, Mao, Stalin, Pol Pot, Hugo Chavez, Maduro, Che Guevara, Brezhnev, Castro, Kosygin, Khrushchev — all these were worse than Nixon. The Islamist darlings of Intersectionalism, the Tamika Mallory-Linda Sarsour universe of Farrakhan “feminists,” they and their ilk get free passes, never exposed at their cores for what they are.

Thus the beauty of this Democrat Primary Year ahead. The biased socialists in the Left Mediacracy have a new urgent agenda. For example, they must take down Amy Klobuchar, and they have done marvelously so far. It turns out that is not “Minnesota Nice”; rather, she is an animal. She regularly hurls hard objects in rage, destroys staff members’ lives and futures when they leave her, abases them, forces them to recite their shortcomings to others, eats food with combs and makes staff then clean the combs. We know this thanks to the media. They never told us this when she was trying to destroy now-Justice Brett Kavanaugh, but now she threatens Bernie and the Breadlines. Likewise, we now know from top-notch journalism at Politico that Gillibrand is an enabler of sexual abuse. Who knew? Her personal chauffeur and Guy Friday elicited bitter complaints from a group of women in Gillibrand’s office, complaining about “rape jokes” and unwanted advances and more, and Gillibrand Janus never did a thing. Like Tammy Wynette she stood by her man — until Politico blew the whistle on her. Then, as Tammy ultimately left George Jones, Gillibrand rapidly booted her guy. Face it: If there is one thing that Kamala Harris does not need running in her lane, it is a White #MeToo Wannabe. Hurray for journalism!

And so it goes. They still have not really dug deeply into how Kamala slept her way to the top politically. She conducted a brazen not-so-intimate public-in-the-media affair with California Democrat Kingmaker Willie Brown while he was very married. His wife fumed. He was thirty years Kamala’s senior, and he lifted her up. So far, though, Kamala enjoys media cover while they go after the Gillibrands and Klobuchars who threaten her. Meanwhile, others who fear that Bernie is too White, too old, too Breadline have their reasons for starting to look at him in a way they never did two years ago when he was the Left’s darling, the only alternative to Hillary. So now we have learned that he endorses an economy that brings about breadlines, loves the Venezuela social experiment, owns three houses, jets around in private aircraft, and also abided his own scandalous enabling of ongoing staffer sexual abuse. Who knew? Don’t you just love Democrat Primaries when so many are running, each threatening the chances of another biased Leftist reporter’s favorite, so that everyone in the Fourth estate is busy ferreting in the name of the First Amendment?

Which brings us to Wing-Flapping Skate-O: Master Beto, he of the hit-and-run DWI, now exposed as a member of a ring who hacked computers, breaking into Microsoft programs, stealing personal credit card numbers and then using them. His defense is Clintonian: he never inhaled, never himself hacked. Beto the son of Ireland and Wales, child of White privilege, son of the stepdaughter of an American Secretary of the Navy, graduate of exclusive private boarding-school life, Columbia University crew co-captain. And member of the “hugely influential Cult of the Dead Cow,” a group dedicated to hacking.

We now also know that Master Beto wrote this fiction prose in a manuscript he authored a few years ago, describing a killer’s decision to run over two children:

This happiness was mine by right. I had earned it in my dreams. As I neared the young ones, I put all my weight on my right foot, keeping the accelerator pedal on the floor until I heard the crashing of the two children on the hood, and then the sharp cry of pain from one of the two. I was so fascinated for a moment, that when after I had stopped my vehicle, I just sat in a daze, sweet visions filling my head.

My dream was abruptly ended when I heard a loud banging on the front window. It was an old man, who was using his cane to awaken me. He might have been a witness to my act of love. I was not sure, nor did I care. It was simply ecstasy. As I drove home, I envisioned myself committing more of these “acts of love,” and after a while, I had no trouble carrying them out. The more people I killed, the longer my dreams were.… I had killed nearly 38 people by the time of my twenty-third birthday, and each one was more fulfilling than the last.

And how did we learn of Beto’s computer-hacking-membership background? Was it from him during a moment of contrite atonement and self-introspection, or perhaps while under the influence of numbing gas during one of his Instagram dental visits? Nope. Rather, it was a bold investigative journalist at Reuters who broke the story. Daring. Courageous. Intrepid. And when did this hero of the pen learn that Master Beto is a low life? He learned it during Beto’s U.S. Senate race against Ted Cruz — and he sat on it when the Democrat sought to take down a leading Republican conservative. He sat on it until now. Now Beto threatens someone else in the Democrat field, and it is time to take him down, off his skateboard. Ah, the luck of the Irish!

A Democrat Primary Year is a beautiful thing to behold.
