Donald Trump, McDonald’s and American Denial

Published

on

McDonald’s is the butt of a lot of jokes. Especially ones that involve tacky, horrible, ugly things that people still buy anyway. Comedian Jim Gaffigan has a whole routine on his embarrassing love for McDonald’s:

I reference McDonald’s a lot ’cause I go to McDonalds. I love the silence that follows that statement—like I just admitted to supporting dog fighting or something. “How could you? McDonald’s?” It’s fun telling people you go to McDonald’s. They always give you that look like, “Oh. I didn’t know I was better than you.” No one admits to going to McDonalds. They sell six billion hamburgers a day. There’s only 300 million people in this country. It’s like, “Hmm … I’m not a calculus teacher, but I think everyone’s lying.” Have you ever been to McDonald’s, and you see a friend for a second? You’re like, “Oh, crap.” Eventually you’re like, “Hey, Hey, What’s going on?” They’re like, “I’m just here for the 99 cent ATM. What are you doing here, Jim?”

’Cause we all should know better by now, right? We’ve all read the articles, seen those documentaries. It’s the same message, “Look. McDonald’s is really bad for you. It’s really high in fat and calories. And we don’t even know where the meat comes from.” And we’re like, “That’s disgusting. I’ll have a Big Mac, a large fry, and a two gallon drum of Diet Coke.” Because there’s a McDonald’s denial. We all embrace it. No one’s going in there innocent.


Akin to the McDonald’s denial is the Trump denial that’s going on in the GOP. Apparently people are too embarrassed to say they support Trump even though they have already quietly and privately decided to vote for him. Don’t believe me? How about this telling survey:

Trending: Finally: A sports Team Not Interested in Kneeling to Black Lives Matter

We [Morning Consult] interviewed 2,397 registered Republicans and Republican-leaning independents over a week in mid-December and varied how they completed the survey [on whether they support Trump for president]. Respondents started the survey online, and about one-third continued to answer questions about Trump and other Republican primary candidates online. Another third answered those same questions with a live interviewer on the phone, and the final third answered the questions with an automated voice on the phone, known as interactive voice response (IVR).

Thirty-eight percent of people who answered questions on the internet chose Trump for president, compared with 32 percent who chose him on the phone with a live interviewer and 36 percent who answered questions via an automated voice on the phone. That six point difference was not seen with other candidates between the different polling methods. Ted Cruz, for example, did about 2 points better on live telephone, as did Ben Carson. Jeb Bush had no difference between the methods.

And it turns out that the online versus in-person spread just got worse the more educated you were. The only people who were unembarrassed to tell other human beings that they actually wanted the Trump in the Oval Office were people who had a high school education or less.

You could say there are a number of reasons for this. Maybe a lot of college-educated people are superficial, snobby, or overly sensitive to political correctness. But that doesn’t really explain why other candidates like Cruz and Carson had a equal support anonymously and over the phone. They’ve said some rather embarrassing things too, remember?

Donald_TrumpNo, this is more akin to the McDonald’s denial. People know Trump is bad for them and bad for the country. They know he’s a bombastic, ideologically bankrupt, self-obsessed demagogue. But when that deep-fried bloviation first hits your ears? It’s like that first McDonald’s french fry. It might be wrong. It certainly can’t be reheated or revisited. But it feels so right in the moment. Just don’t tell anybody about it. Because you’re supposed to be on a diet.

Honestly, the 2016 election is turning out to be the year where, as a nation, we become a little more open about our shameful ignorance and political idiocy. Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton are desperately trying to get Americans to just let it all hang out. And if it ends up being Trump vs. Hillary, 2016 will represent the inaugural year of our country’s unabashed national humiliation. It will seal our fate as an international laughing stock, a ridiculous effigy of our former glory, a scarecrow nation of ideologically inbred, entitled infants.

We might as well just put a dunce cap on the Statue of Liberty, turn the Lincoln Memorial Reflecting Pool into a mixed use open-air urinal and watering hole, install some super-sized Truck Nutz™ at the base of the Washington Monument, and remodel the White House into another local area Hooters. You know. Just to get it all over with.

Rapper Who Bragged in Video About Ripping Off Unemployment Arrested by Feds

Rapper Nuke Bizzle who rapped about ripping off unemployment benefits was arrested him for the fraud.

Published

on

Rapper Nuke Bizzle thought he was the fo shizzle by rapping about how he was ripping off unemployment benefits, but apparently the feds were not amused and arrested him for the fraud.

According to a Department of Justice statement, the rapper, whose real name is Fontrell Antonio Baines, “boasted in a YouTube music video about getting rich from committing unemployment benefits fraud.”

The government alleges that the Los Angeles-based Bizzle and several of his buddies used fake addresses to defraud the agency of up to $700,000 in unemployment benefits.

He was arrested on Oct. 16 “pursuant to a criminal complaint alleging a scheme to fraudulently obtain unemployment insurance benefits under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act.”

Authorities were alerted to the fraud by people who saw and reported the rapper’s own videos.

In one of the videos, for instance, Bizzle bragged about “go[ing] to the bank with a stack of” unemployment cards.

The government added:

The affidavit further alleges that Baines bragged about his ability to defraud the EDD in a music video posted on YouTube and in postings to his Instagram account, under the handles “nukebizzle1” and “nukebizzle23.” For example, Baines appears in a music video called “EDD” in which he boasts about doing “my swagger for EDD” and, holding up a stack of envelopes from EDD, getting rich by “go[ing] to the bank with a stack of these” – presumably a reference to the debit cards that come in the mail. A second rapper in the video intones, “You gotta sell cocaine, I just file a claim….”

Bizzle faces a maximum of 22 years in prison related to the charges if he is convicted.

Young Black Voters No Longer Loyal to the Democrat Party

More and more, Gen Z black voters are questioning why blacks should be loyal to the Democrat Party that they see as severely lacking in appeal.

Published

More and more, Gen Z black voters are questioning why blacks should be loyal to the Democrat Party that they see as severely lacking in appeal.

According to a report at Politico, many of these young blacks born after 1990 are wondering just why they should be all fired up about the Democrats when every single Democrat-run city in America is an absolute, bankrupt mess.

Certainly, blacks in the U.S. are still holding onto the outmoded idea that the Democrat Party is the “party of civil rights,” a false notion that gained steam in the 1970s. But things seem to be on the verge of changing.

A 2019 Pew Research Center study, for instance, found that liberals make up a majority of the Democratic voting bloc, but blacks are not so ready to claim to be liberal. 43 percent of them said they identified as moderate and 25 percent even identified as conservative.

Some of these blacks who consider themselves more conservative are realizing that the Democrat Party stands against families, for one. And that activism against traditional marriage and families is detrimental to the black community.

Many of these young black conservatives are organizing and talking amongst themselves about how bad the Democrat agenda has been for them.

As Fox News noted:

For example, Congress’ 1994 Crime Bill is being scrutinized anew by Gen Zers across the country. Many feel the bill, which Biden co-authored, disproportionately affects Black communities — even though the ban on assault weapons was popular among Black lawmakers almost 30 years ago.

Young Black conservatives say their support for Trump is based on policies that work for them: the First Step Act, the FUTURE Act and economic success leading to historically low Black unemployment numbers.

This growing movement is important for Republicans. Because, even though the Democrats have been able to count on the near total, blind support of blacks in the past, with elections often as close as they have been recently, even if 10 to 30 percent of blacks stray from the Democrats, it could hurt the leftist party’s chances of winning elections.

Trump Was Right-Harvard Admits Patients Over COVID Have ‘Long-Lasting Immunity’

Twitter censored what it called “Trump’s false claim” that he has immunity from COVID-19, but now even Harvard is admitting that Trump may be right.

Published

On Wednesday, social media giant Twitter censored what it called “Trump’s false claim” that he has immunity from COVID-19, but now even Harvard is admitting that Trump may be right.

“A total and complete sign off from White House Doctors yesterday. That means I can’t get it (immune), and can’t give it. Very nice to know!!!” Trump wrote on Twitter Sunday.

But Wednesday, Twitter had added a warning label that claimed that Trump’s tweet “violated the Twitter Rules about spreading misleading and potentially harmful information related to COVID-19.”

Twitter’s operatives — who are now apparently posing as scientists and doctors when not a one of them are either — took it upon themselves to “correct” the president of the United States.

But now, even Harvard University is admitting that Trump was on to something with his claims of immunity.

In an October 8 posting, the university noted that “people who survive serious COVID-19 infections have long-lasting immune responses against the virus.”

“The study, published in Science Immunology, offers hope that people infected with the virus will develop lasting protection against reinfection. The study also demonstrates that measuring antibodies can be an accurate tool for tracking the spread of the virus in the community,” the story added.

So, who the hell does Twitter think they are censoring the president when actual doctors and scientists have said that Trump is probably right. He does have an amount of immunity now that he has come through the coronavirus.

Ah, but Twitter knows better.

Texas Grand Jury Indicts Netflix For Exploitation Of Children Over ‘Cuties’ Movie

A Tyler County grand jury has indicted Netflix Inc. in connection with a controversial movie titled Cuties. The grand jury indicted the California-based streaming service on a charge of the promotion of lewd visual material depicting a child.

State Rep. Matt Schaefer, R-Tyler, tweeted the text of the indictment on Tuesday. He also included the hashtags #Cuties and #txlege.

“Netflix indicted by grand jury in Tyler Co, for promoting material in Cuties film which depicts lewd exhibition of pubic area of a clothed or partially clothed child who was younger than 18 yrs of age which appears to the prurient interest in sex,” Schaefer said in his tweet.

Westphalian TImes:

A Texas Grand Jury indicted Netflix for ‘knowingly’ promoting material in the film “Cuties” which depicts “the lewd exhibition of the genitals or pubic area of a clothed or partially clothed child who was younger than 18 years of age.” More

The text of the indictment states that Netflix knowingly promotes “visual material which depicts the lewd exhibition of the genitals or pubic area of a clothed or partially clothed child who was younger than 18 years of age at the time the visual material was created, which appeals to the prurient interest in sex and has no serious literary, artistic, political, or scientific value… “

CNN Analyst And Former FBI Agent “We Have A Biological Terrorist In The White House”

Asha Rangappa, an analyst for CNN and a former FBI special agent tweeted: “We have a biological terrorist in the White House.” This follows President Trump’s return to the White House on Monday evening after treatment for the Coronavirus.

Defending her claim, Asha Rangappa cited a Justice Department memo stating back in March that the novel Coronavirus “appears to meet the statutory definition of a biological agent” and that those who engage in the “purposeful exposure and infections of others” could be charged for terrorism-related offenses.

While there are allegations that he knew about his positive diagnosis significantly earlier than he had announced it on Thursday evening, there is no certifiable evidence that he knowingly exposed officials and staffers to the virus.

Twitter took aim!

Washington Councilwoman’s ‘Good Reminder’ for Rioters to Use Firebombs in ‘Protests’

A Snohomish councilwoman has stirred controversy by posting a notice to remind “protesters” to use firebombs during their rioting.

Published

A Snohomish councilwoman has stirred controversy by posting a notice to remind “protesters” to use firebombs during their rioting.

Snohomish County, Washington, Councilmember Megan Dunn, a 2nd County District Democrat, posted a very offensive Facebook entry that she tried to delete not long after facing a backlash, KTTH reported.

Dunn had posted a cross stitched project with a message that said, “Be the light you want to see in the world.” Along with the message was a Molotov cocktail like the ones used to firebomb police.

Posting a photo of a Molotov cocktail was bad enough, but the Democrat added her own comment to the cross stitching saying, “No my stitch project but a good reminder.”

In other words, she was reminding “protesters” to throw firebombs at the police.

The Everett Police Officers Association was not amused at Dunn’s “good reminder” to toss firebombs at police.

The EPOA called on her to apologize and resign, adding, “Promoting violence/murder against our LE professionals and destruction of our communities is NOT acceptable from anyone. It is a crime.”

The leftist dolt councilwoman later tried to pretend that posting a “good reminder” about Molotov cocktails was not about violence. Because, you know, how could anyone think that posting pictures of firebombs was promoting violence… or … something.

“My post of a counter-culture cross stitching project was in no way intended as a call for violence or encouraging violence, it does not reference police or violence against police and has no imagery of police,” Dunn exclaimed. “I have removed the post, which was on my personal Facebook page and is not representative of the Council as a whole or of my sentiments towards law enforcement officials.”

She claimed that the Molotov cocktail was just a metaphor to mean you should “strive for systemic reforms and being brighter than a candle for the change you want to see in the world.”

What a load of garbage that is.
