Join Jim and Greg as they welcome the Cook Report shifting three critical 2022 Senate races from leaning towards the Democrats to being pure toss-ups…and all of them are held by Democrats. They also shudder over the horrific killing and serious injuring of people at a Christmas parade in Waukesha, Wisconsin, on Sunday. And they wonder why the suspect was even free in the first place. And they assess the significance of Chinese tennis star Peng Shuai appearing in public for the first time since her allegations that she was raped by a former high-ranking official in the Chinese Communist Party.

So, there we were again, on riot watch, as we waited with bated breath to hear the verdict in the Kyle Rittenhouse case in Democrat-run, Kenosha, Wisconsin.  For most, it seemed to be an open-and-shut case of self-defense, but it was scarily starting to look like a hung jury.  And then, all of a sudden, the verdict was in: not guilty on all […]

I read another one this morning, another article about the Kenosha affair and its larger significance. 99.44% bloviation, of course, but that’s ok, I was just waiting for the covfefe anyway. The article was generally positive, but a couple of paragraphs in lay a nasty little stink bomb.  I’ll quote the paragraph without attribution, since […]

Quote of the Day: Facts

 

“Facts don’t care about your feelings.” – Ben Shapiro

I have used this once before, but if ever there was a quote that summed up this week this is it. We have seen it in the lefty reactions to the Rittenhouse verdict. It is a giant cry of “Don’t confuse me with facts. My feelings tell me he is guilty.”

Rittenhouse Verdict Reactions

 

Democrats are predictably unhinged. “This system isn’t built to hold white supremacists accountable. It’s why Black and brown folks are brutalized and put in cages while white supremacist murderers walk free.” I am mystified about how a trial of a white man for shooting three other white man is “white supremacy.”

Also, they’re blatantly lying about what happened.  The chairman of the DCCC stated that Jacob Blake was 1) unarmed and 2) killed, neither of which is true. (Democrats lie about everything, all the time, but apparently, we are supposed to take them at their word when they swear they counted the votes honestly.)

I’ve often said that my enthusiasm for Donald Trump owed a lot to those arrayed against him: anyone who invited such scorn and hatred from such miserable excuses of humanity as the hyper-vitriolic left must have something going for him.

I find myself feeling the same about young Mr. Rittenhouse. Just as I long ago stopped criticizing President Trump because the criticism heaped on him by others was so over-the-top, so too will I refrain from expressing anything other than wholehearted support for Mr. Rittenhouse.
