Reality Check: Readers’ Responses

—by , June 18, 2014

Ahhh…back to political analysis this week, Mr. Campion—where you belong. (DESPERATE DEMOCRATS LOWBALL STRATEGY 2014—Issue: 4/23/14) The Democrats are indeed on the run and it looks to be a slaughterhouse, unless the Republicans elect more TEA Party dipshits then it’s anybody’s game and that would leave the Senate in the hands of the Dems and then what would be the point?

This is a president having a bad first two years of his final run, something you have pointed out is as expected as the sun’s arrival every morning. His approvals are where? 42 percent or something like that? What else can the Dems do? Embrace Obamacare? That makes no sense, even if it has had successes in some states, in others it is a farce and although this works in House races, the Senate works off national issues, and overall the ACA is a doomed prospect to run on.

I think you have it right, and your Karl Rove memories are always my favorite asides, but let’s face facts: Rove is a has-been. He spent millions upon millions on elections he coughed up in 2012 and looked like a jabbering baboon on Election Night. People on FOX, who were about to slit their wrists over Romney, had to hold him down.

It really comes down to the TEA Party challengers. If the GOP stays the course and just lets the president shoot himself in the foot, then the Republicans should be in good shape. If not, then it’s business as usual. And they have no one to blame but themselves.

Much better column in terms of where the focus should be—not that I don’t enjoy the hapless Republican meme, although your optics on voter ID laws is myopic—the Left LOVES to use the “voter fraud is non-existent” claim, yet when you control the media apparatus that decides what we the people know (or at least the “we” that’s dumb enough to think the mainstream media is unbiased) it’s more than a little disingenuous to say something is nonexistent when you yourself fail to report the myriad of examples that are out there. Case in point—NC just uncovered some 35,000 double votes from 2012 where wife-killing tax cheat Mitt Romney (hat tip Barack Obama) just barely squeaked by. Where’s that in the mainstream media or even mentioned in your column? Answer: nowhere. That doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist now does it? And if that’s just in NC, imagine what the number is when extrapolated to the entire country. If voter fraud farts in the woods and no one was around to hear it, did it make a sound?

Oh, I was so hoping that Hilary’s name would not appear in this article.

Regardless of what happens with the Senate this year and the purported transfer of power, if she runs for president—even worse gets elected—I will slit my proverbial wrists. Has this country and its populace not had enough of the Clintons and the machinations of the liberal left? We cannot afford anymore liberals in the White House. Period. On so many levels. Or the Republican Establishment for that matter. It’s time for true apolitical fiscal conservatives, if such a concept exists, to run this country and the challenge will be to find someone who qualifies. I just hope people are smart enough not to once again get sucked in by the media and the vituperation that you anticipate à la Karl Rove.

This is the Campion I LOVE! (BUNDY RANCH SOLUTION: FREE-FOR-ALL IN NEVADA—Issue: 4/30/14) Hilarious! And even more hilarious is this Bundy freak has now proven he is a racist, dumb-hick tax-evader and it is so beautiful that king dunderhead Sean Hannity has been championing him as a hero! Love it! First the guy who killed Trayvon Martin is a right-wing champion, then the goon from Duck Dynasty and Joe The Plumber (who recently commented that “your dead kid is not enough to take my rights”) and this KKK supporter. Cannot wait to see who is next for the right wing to call hero.

James,

You are part of the clueless yammering class of pseudo intellectuals parroting the government line. I love how liberals who in the ’60s said “fuck the man” are now the same tools screaming “obey the man.” I think first you need the facts, not the government generated spin.

The land in question has been in the Bundy family since 1877, 50 years before BLM ever existed.

Bundy is current on all Nevada State and Clark County taxes and fees. Because Bundy believes the BLM has never held up their end of the bargain in terms of maintenance and improvement of the land he in turn refuses to pay them. I would do the same if I felt the federal government stole the land and then made me pay for the privilege of remaining on MY land.

Why did BLM come with mercenaries strapped with M-4’s? I know why, it’s because with no witnesses we were going to have another Ruby Ridge and Waco. What saved Bundy was not the militia rifles (even though that’s what gets most anti-gun pussies all moist and shit) but it was militia cameras that showed BLM agents throw a woman to the ground and taser another guy. It was the militiaman in a private aircraft that found where the government was stowing the stolen cattle and thus BLM got the FAA to declare the area essentially a “no fly zone” to prevent another such disclosure. This fight was won by the camera not the rifle, never forget that.

This is indeed We The People in action. Bundy is one of the final remaining cattle ranchers in that area. The others were bullied and chased out long ago, Bundy is holding out. Why are statists and liberals so anti-Bundy for holding out when the benefactor of this invasion is none other than Harry Reid who stands to make money when the Bundy Ranch is sold to Chinese investors who will put a solar farm in there. Harry Reid didn’t have two nickels to rub together before he was elected to the Senate and now he is one of the richest men in the Senate and you want to crucify Bundy!?!?!?!

This fight is in now way over. The BLM has already told state officials in both Texas and Oklahoma that they are next. Frankly, I think this is an out of control government BEGGING for a fight. They know that both Oklahoma and Texas have strong active militias and it is there they can attack, blame the militias and finally declare martial law. I agree it sounds crazy but which is crazier, believing an out of control statist government is capable of martial law or that this out of control government is on a U.S. tour in support of stealing land for their own benefit?

BTW, who stands up for you when this government comes for yours?

 

Peace,

—Bill Roberts

 

James, I think I just peed myself.
