ABC’s New Motto; Anti-Establishment; And Anarchy *Open Thread*


Yes, it seems that ABC News has a new motto they are employing this week: Anyone But Carly.

As you no doubt know, ABC has decided to leave out Carly Fiorina from the Saturday night GOP debate, the next one before the big NH Primary on Tuesday. Mind you, Carly Fiorina got more actual VOTES than either Governors, Kasich and Christie. Yet, they are on the state. This is the only debate ABC is airing – no more undercards now that more candidates have dropped out. But to leave out Fiorina is absurd.

Heck, even some of her competitors think she should be in there (h/t Facebook friend):

Good for Sen. Cruz. Dr. Carson also said Fiorina should be in the debate. I agree. And honestly, I sure as hell would rather hear HER than John Kasich any day of the week, but that is just me. I can also say, if she isn’t on the stage, I am not giving ABC my viewing time. Hey, there are other things to watch on Sat. night, after all.

As you have also likely heard,t here was a Democratic debate between Sen. Bernie Sanders and Sec. Hillary Clinton Thursday night. As I wrote earlier this week, Sanders is a Socialist, though some of his supporters have NO idea what that means:

Wow. Perhaps people should have a bit of a clue just what someone IS before they throw their support to him.

And they should pay attention when Sanders makes this claim as reported in The Hill:

[…] “I am running for the president as a Democrat,” he continued. “But I do want to see major changes in the Democratic Party.”

“I want a 50-state strategy so that the Democratic Party is not just the party of 25 states,” Sanders said. “I want to see more young people and working-class people coming into the party then are presently coming in now.” […] (Click here to read the rest.)

That should scare the crap out of EVERYONE. Sanders is not some cute little ol’ grump grandpa of a man. He is a Socialist who is saying FLAT OUT he wants to change the Democratic Party – I guess to make it fully Socialist, though those weren’t his exact words.

But here’s the thing: both Sanders and Clinton were arguing over who was the most Establishment candidate, with Sanders accusing Clinton of being “establishment.” Wow, seriously? This is such an idiotic argument to be having since they are BOTH “establishment” candidates! Now, I grant you, Sanders’ people will surely believe this moniker he is attaching to Clinton since they are so clueless about what Socialism is. But a man who served as the Mayor of a major city, served as a US Representative, and is a US Senator, is ESTABLISHMENT. He may not have a super-pac, but for heaven’s sake, he is just as establishment Clinton is:

Please. They are both Establishment. And for Clinton to claim she CAN’T be Establishment because she is a WOMAN is just idiotic. But their supporters will find a way to ignore the reality right in front of them, I guess. They have thus far anyway, so I don’t imagine that will change any time soon.

And then there is the Anarchy raging in this country courtesy of – wait for it – President Obama. Yes, Obama. It seems Obama has made it ABUNDANTLY clear to the Border Patrol that they are absolutely NOT to follow Immigration Law on those coming into the country illegally. From the Daily Caller:

A top Border Patrol agent revealed Thursday that if border agents follow the law and ask illegal aliens why they are coming to the U.S. they will be terminated.

The Border Patrol previously had a policy of “catch and release” that drew the ire of Border Patrol agents: “These orders are called Notices to Appear (NTA). The only problem, however, is that these official orders are usually ignored; so much so that Border Patrol Agents have dubbed them Notices to Disappear,” Brandon Judd, president of the National Border Patrol Council testified.

“The latest data that I have seen shows that approximately 40 percent of the individuals being issued NTAs do not show up. The willful failure to show up for court appearances by persons that were arrested and released by the Border Patrol has become an extreme embarrassment for the Department of Homeland Security,” he said.

Eventually the DHS implemented a new policy that was even easier for illegals to exploit. The policy makes mandatory the release of any person arrested by the Border Patrol for being in the country illegally as long as they don’t have a felony conviction and claim they have been in the U.S. continuously since January 2014. […] (Click here to read the rest.)

This is just outrageous. There is no way to see this as anything less than lawlessness by the Obama Administration. To threaten our Border Patrol agents with TERMINATION if they enforce the law to allow illegal aliens to flood our borders is reprehensible, not to mention un-Constitutional.

This revelation goes right along with what we learned recently about illegal immigrants from Cuba and their abuse of our Welfare system. Sen. Rubio has filed legislation to try and curb these abuses:

[…] “It is outrageous whenever the American people’s generosity is exploited,” Rubio said in a statement announcing the bill. “It is particularly outrageous when individuals who claim to be fleeing repression in Cuba are welcomed and allowed to collect federal assistance based on their plight, only to return often to the very place they claimed to be fleeing.”

Rubio’s bill would require Cuban immigrants to prove they were persecuted in Cuba to qualify for cash, food stamps and Medicaid, like asylum seekers from other countries. U.S. Rep. Carlos Curbelo of Miami filed similar legislation last month that has the support of Cuban Americans in Congress along with other key lawmakers.

But many Cubans are now coming for economic reasons and return regularly to Cuba, some even living on the island while collecting U.S. benefits, the Sun Sentinel reported inEasy Money an investigative series in October. Welfare meant to help Cubans start new lives in the United States has grown into an entitlement costing taxpayers more than $680 million a year. […] (Click here to read the rest.)

It is outrageous that we are shelling out so much money for people who are jumping the line ahead of Cubans trying to come here LEGALLY. In essence, the line jumpers are being rewarded, and that is just unacceptable.

While I hope this legislation passes, until we have a President who is not descending our country into Immigration Anarchy, our agents will be hard pressed to do their jobs. That cannot stand.

That’s what I think. How about you? This is an Open Thread.

    Bernie Sanders Beats Hillary in a Lying Contest

    The angry old leftist future of the Democrats.

    By Daniel Greenfield

    What Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders lacked in the way of ideas, they more than made up for in volume. Hillary Clinton screamed, “I can get things done” as if she were pitching a product on an infomercial. Bernie Sanders ran his own telethon, stumbling over words as he boasted how much moolah he had taken in, “a million people” and “27 bucks a piece”.

      It is truly remarkable, isn’t it? Frankly, I cannot believe that ether one of them is doing as well as they are. I guess the All Important “D” is all that matters.

      They could most definitely start their own Liar’s Club though, couldn’t they?

      Thanks for the great article!

    • mcnorman Says:

      After propping up the pos in the WH, the Dems think this is better? They truly believe that the American citizen lacks any brain whatsoever.

      • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

        So it seems, mcnorman. I mean, really – this is THE best they can do? But that so many people are supporting SANDERS of all candidates is astonishing to me.

      Ahahahaha – sadly, that is abt right…

      • kenoshamarge Says:

        Even the Des Moines Register, which endorsed Hillary is not a bit happy about those coin tosses. Sorry Trumpkins, they don’t mention any problem with the GOP final result.

        Des Moines Register: Audit Iowa’s Democratic Caucus

        Something is rotten in Iowa and it’s the results of Monday night’s Democratic Caucus.

        Hillary won by the skin of her teeth and with the help of some incredible luck in a half-dozen coin tosses.

        Thursday, the editorial board of the Des Moines Register called for an audit of Monday night’s Democratic Caucus results. It’s worth noting the DMR’s endorsed Hillary Clinton as their Democratic candidate of choice. “Something smells in the Democratic Party,” they wrote.

        • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

          Uh, yeah – that says something, doesn’t it? Both abt their irritation over the coin toss and the LACK of any concern over the GOP side.

          I still cannot get over how Trump can just make crap up and people treat it like it is LEGITIMATE. It is just nuts. Absolutely nuts.

        • mcnorman Says:

          She’s been promised the throne and she is not about to let any minor detail make that go away.

          • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

            Yes, that is it exactly, mcnorman – she was clearly told to back the hell off in 2008 and they would let her be the nominee in 2016. Hey, they fixed Obama’s nomination, so this is old hat to them.

          • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

            Dang, mcnorman – that is quite the commentary on our current state of affairs…

          • kenoshamarge Says:

            You mean a minor detail like the voters?

  3. Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

    Does Obama really think we don’t know what he said just a few years ago? Sure seems that way:

  4. Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

    Carly Fiorina is going to be on Special Report tonight. I have no doubt they will discuss the Debate issue. Just a heads up, in case y’all are interested. 🙂

  5. Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

    A friend had this article abt Trump and his berating of the reporters who have to follow him – especially the women:’s-like-to-be-a-reporter-covering-trump/ar-BBp9ffW?ocid=sf

    • kenoshamarge Says:

      Media types take this kind of treatment and say nothing? They are worse than I thought. And so is he and his followers.

      • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

        I was pretty surprised – not that Trump acts like that, not at all – that behavior from him is EXACTLY what I expect. But as you said, that they TAKE it. And that they somehow seem to see it as a badge of honor, of playing in the Big Leagues, is astonishing.

      I don’t begrudge people making money off of pharmaceuticals, of course. They often spend quite a bit on R&D, and deserve the fruits of their labors (though allowing them to become generic sooner rather than later is definitely a good thing). But this arrogant, smirking punk was just unbearable. WOW.

    Trump: Actually, I Don’t Care About That Fraudulently ‘Stolen’ Election Anymore By Guy Benson

    In case you’re struggling to keep up, Trump has gone from (a) “congrats, Ted, you earned it,” to (b) “THIS IS FRAUD, THE ELECTION WAS STOLEN, AND I DEMAND A DO-OVER!” to (c) “meh, whatever, I don’t care anymore” in the span of 48 hours or so. From graciousness, to leveling the most serious electoral charges that exist, to a shrug. Seriously, please try to imagine the potential consequences of electing Moodswings McGee to the most powerful office in the world.

    • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

      Trump accomplished exactly what he wanted to accomplish – making this ALL abt HIM. Once again, the media was all too compliant in his little lunacy ride. Good grief.
