Video: St. Louis Grandmother Who Slammed #BlackLivesMatter Responds to Her Critics

Peggy Hubbard had a very strong emotional reaction (see here) to so-called “Black Lives Matter” protesters rioting in St. Louis over the recent shooting of a black 18-year-old male, who reportedly was in possession of a stolen handgun and fired at police officers executing a warrant for his arrest; while the same protesters were eerily silent over the murder of a nine-year-old girl in Ferguson who was murdered in her home during a drive-by shooting while she was doing homework at her kitchen table. It outraged Hubbard activists protested for “the thug,” but not the little girl.

Hubbard was asked during an interview with CNN’s Don Lemon how she would respond to her critics. Her response? … “Bite me.”

Well done, Peggy … well done.

Forum: Will Hillary Clinton Still Be the Democrat Nominee?

The Watcher’s Council

Hillary-Mr-Clean

Every week on Monday morning , the Council and our invited guests weigh in at the Watcher’s Forum, short takes on a major issue of the day, the culture, or daily living. This week’s question: Will Hillary Clinton Still Be The Democrat Nominee?

 Don Surber : No. She is Pig Pen in the Peanuts comic strip of politics. Everywhere she goes, dirt. Dirt and flies. The Democrats may float Mike Dukakis name next.

 The Razor : I hope so but I suspect she won’t be. It would be a Democrat’s worst nightmare if she prevailed through this mess and faced a competent Republican candidate. Of course that last part assumes a lot right now from the Stupid Party. But I’m getting that uncomfortable feeling I get when I watch a comedian bombing on stage, or when I pass an accident on the road and struggle not to look. Her candidacy is looking increasingly like a slow-motion train wreck, and I’m simply amazed at how arrogant, narcissistic and just plain stupid she is. Were all the smart people Bill’s friends?
I honestly hope that by Election Day 2016 she’ll be in jail. She clearly deserves it.

 The Independent Sentinel : She will either be a candidate or indicted. That’s the USA today!

Since I don’t think the FBI will do anything substantive, she will be the candidate.

It’s the GOPs election to lose and lose they might very well do so.

JoshuaPundit : I think it depends on several factors, some of which I went over here.

The dislike between the Obamas and the  Clintons is palpable and personal. But beyond that, Obama considers the Clintons – believe it or not – too conservative to lead the ulta-Left prog fascist party he envisions having significant influence over even after he’s out of the White House. And much of the base agrees with him, egged on by the Soros media machine.

So here’s the first basic thing to consider. The FBI and the Inspector Generals work for Barack Obama, and if he didn’t want this e-mail controversy to surface and continue to fester, it wouldn’t have. So the first question is how far he’s willing and able to take this…far enough to knock Mrs. Clinton out of the box for the nomination but not far enough to where she feels threatened enough to have her lawyer call up someone like Benghazi chairman Trey Gowdy  and other committee heads and start talking deal in exchange for immunity and her testimony on certain matters  the Obama regime would rather weren’t made public. Mrs. Clinton is not without weapons of her own. This could end with a fine and a temporary rescinding of her security clearance, as it did with the Clinton’s creature Sandy Burger.

The second thing to consider is the nature of the Democrat field. Mrs. Clinton has raised more money than all the others combined. She also has the best organization, including Clintonistas scattered throughout the media. After which she can say “I made an honest mistake and I paid for it. Now let’s talk about amnesty and reparations and the fact I’m a woman!”

While Socialist Bernie Sanders has been making some noise, he is still a Jew by birth, if a radical,  irreligious and anti-Israel one, Most blacks, Hispanics and Muslims will not vote for him and they’re an important, vital part of the Democrat coalition. After the New Hampshire primary, which along with Iowa is composed of most white voters, I expect him to fade. There’s no one else at this time, not really.

The recent meeting of Joe Biden and Elizabeth Warren is of interest, but we’ll know soon if there are any burning embers among the smoke. For Slo-Jo to make a real run of it, he would almost certainly have to announce the first week or so of September.

GrEaT sAtAn”S gIrLfRiEnD : HRC as the Democrat candidate? Looking kinda iffy! It’s one thing to blow off Congress cats and bothersome reporters about her E Mailgate. Quite another to diss the FBI (even if the FBI is doing their very first ever Non Criminal Investigation all about HRC’s server chiz).

Yet way more important is 44’s role in all this. And it looks like 44 is driving it too. Days ago 42 meet and golfed with 44 and you can be sure two things that came up: Attorney General Lynch and Vice President Biden.

Now we learn VP Biden has been hooking up with Senator Elizabeth Warren!

As the radio cat with half his brain tied behind his back says :

“The Hillary thing, I think it’s personal with the Clintons and the Obamas. I don’t think it goes any deeper. It may, but it’s personal. “

“Look, folks, these are the things that you think go in one ear and out the other. But when Bill Clinton in South Carolina is sitting there at a cafe talking to a buddy of his after they’ve thrown the race card down on the guy and Clinton is saying — I forget who he said this to, and it’s a prominent name, might have been Ted Kennedy. It was Ted Kennedy. He was sitting there having a drink with Ted Kennedy and Obama’s on TV or walking by, and Clinton said (doing impression), “You know, Ted, wasn’t that long ago, a guy like this would be getting us our coffee.” Well, that’s the kind of thing Obama never forgets, particularly that. That was Clinton calling Obama, I mean, that was Clinton talking about slavery, dare we say. “

“Obama’s an African-American, coffee, what, he’d be servant? Obama doesn’t forget that stuff. And some of the stuff that happened during that campaign, Hillary and Bill, I think this is personal with them. Well, then why did he make her secretary of state? It’s a pretty brilliant move. It looks like she’s pretty incompetent, right? And she’s got all these problems now that he probably helped create. I mean, he’s done his best to discredit her, and her coronation is now off the rails yet again, thanks to him. The old saw about keeping your friends close, your enemies closer. “

Get your “Riding With Biden” paraphernalia now!

Puma By Design :Straight Answer: Nope!

The Obamas despise the Clintons and does not want them entering as they exit the White House.

Oh sure, the Barry gave the Clintons his blessing but he was just but he was merely paying a debt from the 2008 presidential campaign. Debt repaid with the left hand, screwing Clinton with the right.

As for who then? Joe Biden or Elizabeth Warren.

The powers that be are aware that Clinton will kick, scream and claw her way to becoming the left’s chosen candidate. I believe there is an urgency by some (Obama) to take her down hard once and for all.

Enter Joe Biden who must first collaborate with Elizabeth Warren so that when Hillary throws the gender card out there, Warren will run interference keeping feminists in check.

If Joe Biden fails, enter Elizabeth Warren. The plan may have been the plan all along to get the left so sick of Hillary that they would be thankful for Warren who as far as I can see is the only thing worse for America than Hillary or Bernie Sanders.

 The Glittering Eye: Unless she’s actually serving time somewhere, Hillary Clinton will be the Democratic nominee. The Democrats and the Republicans have traded places. This cycle the Democrats want to fall in line and the Republicans want to fall in love.

The progressive wing of the Democratic Party (a third to half of the party) knows where its heart is: Bernie Sanders. If he were a black woman he’d be perfect. Despite where their collective heart leads, they’ll still vote for Hillary. She also has the solid support of the black caucus. That’s enough to secure the nomination.

The Republicans, on the other hand, are looking for love (in all the wrong places). That’s why no one other than The Donald can get any traction. Well, that and the 24/7 press coverage he’s receiving.

The Right Planet : Well, I really hate making predictions. But it’s long been reported that there is some bad blood between the Obama’s and the Clinton’s. So, I would not be surprised if the Obama Administration is firing torpedoes at the U.S.S.S. (United States Socialist Ship) Hillary Clinton. And if that’s the case, it must mean that there is something far worse than Hillary (if that’s possible) waiting in the wings. I just read that VP Biden had a meeting with Fauxchahontas (Elizabeth Warren). And Socialist Sanders is giving Comrade Hillary a run for her Clinton Cash. So there’s a damn good chance Hillary might not be the presidential candidate for the Democrats. But, what difference, at this point, does it make?

Nice Deb : I’ve been saying since March that it isn’t going to be Hillary. The Regime’s preferred candidate is Liz Warren, but the surest pathway to the White House for her through Biden. Biden has the name recognition and stature needed to win the presidential election in 2016 with Warren as his running mate. One term of Biden and the next two Warren. That’s the plan. That’s what we have to look forward to.

  Well, there you have it.

Make sure to tune in every Monday for the Watcher’s Forum. And remember, every Wednesday, the Council has its weekly contest with the members nominating two posts each, one written by themselves and one written by someone from outside the group for consideration by the whole Council.

Video w/ Commentary: Laura Ingraham vs. Charles Krauthammer

By: Brent Parrish

One of the big issues I have with neocon-esque commentators like Charles Krauthammer is, well … their neocon-esqueness. While there have been plenty of times where I have found myself in full agreement with Krauthammer, I’m still dubious of his “conservative” monicker—which is a subject that extends beyond the scope of this post (more on that here).

Laura Ingraham did quite well, in my opinion, in her rebuttal to Krauthammer’s argument on immigration by clearly laying out some of the major differences that exist between neoconservatives and conservatives on subjects ranging from the so-called “free trade” deals to the controversy over “birthright citizenship.”

I have never pulled any punches or minced words when it comes to my long-held belief— based on thorough research and empirical evidence—that Barack Obama and his minions are a motley collection of communists, socialists, Maoists, statists, collectivists, etc. But there are quite a few people, on both the right and left, who get their panties up in a bunch when I call out Barack Husein Obama for what he is—a Marxist-Leninist … someone who puts the theories of Karl Marx into practice.

Some people have told me that I might be better off not using labels like “socialist” or “Marxist-Leninist” to describe Barack Obama and his ilk. Well, let me channel Donald Trump: What would you like me to call them? I mean, ladies and gentlemen, it is what it is! We certainly can waste a lot of time beating around the bush in order to avoid offending anybody. But … cui bono?  I’m sure Barack Obama & Friends would like it if they could keep hiding behind the “I’m not a socialist … I just play one on TV” meme. Sorry, I’m calling like I see it. Period. End of story.

Diana West deals with the issue of calling a spade a spade head-on in her book American Betrayal (p. 27):

… [W]ith less than two weeks before Election Day, Fox News’s Special Report with Brit Hume took up the [socialist] issue in a panel discussion featuring Mara Liasson, Fred Barnes, and the quasi-oracular Charles Krauthammer.

The conversation kicked off promisingly enough with a question from Hume as to whether Obama’s recent comment to Joe the Plumber had “raised legitimate questions about whether he has a socialist or socialistic policy.” Conversation stalled with Barnes, who seemed more intent on fending off similarly justifiable questions regarding the socialist underpinnings of both John McCain’s and George W. Bush’s taxation and banking policies, ignoring the Obama story altogether. As a legitimate line of inquiry, however, the topic dead-ended when it got to Charles Krauthammer. “Since the word ‘socialism’ has reared its ugly head,” he began, “let’s dispose of it.”

I fail to see how we can effectively confront and combat the collectivist policies of Obama Inc. if we are too trepid to call it out for what it is: Marxian socialism.

Something’s Happening Here

The Z Man

Credit: Serena Fenton

I must admit I have enjoyed the Trump-a-palooza this summer. The truth is, I have thrown in the towel on America so I don’t think our elections mean very much. It’s just a question about how fast we intend to drive into the abyss. Being old I should be rooting for slow as that means I can reach escape velocity before it gets ugly. On the other hand, life is for living and sticking around long enough to see the collapse has its attractions.

I can go either way so the elections are just entertainment at this point.

Six months ago I was thinking the Democrats would anoint Hillary, after the usual dalliances with a true believer, who excites the fever swamp types. It’s the GOP’s turn so this is when the party hands out their lifetime achievement award. The GOP would be figuring out if they can run Bush or if they have to find someone with the same polices, but a different last name.

Now, I think something is happening here. Clinton is now immersed in what could very well be the scandal of the century. There’s no way to wriggle free of the mishandling of classified data. You can finesse financial laws and ethics rules. You can’t finesse this stuff. News reports suggest there may be dozens of people who have violated the law and conspired to hide their involvement. This is Watergate level stuff given her position.

On the GOP side, Donald Trump just gave a speech in a stadium. If you are a member of the Party leadership or an advisor to one of the candidates, you should be in a panic. Trump went from sideshow at the start of the summer to leader of a revolution at the end of the summer. In-between, the GOP took their best shots at the man and did not leave a mark. Watching Trump’s crowd last night I kept thinking, “something is happening here. What it is ain’t exactly clear.”

One thing that is clear is I was the only guy to figure out that Trump was Beppe Grillo. The other thing is the ossified and blinkered chattering classes are wholly unprepared for what’s happening to them right now. They spend their time reading each other’s tweets, promoting each other’s work and chatting with one another at play time. They are not even aware of the vast network of writers, bloggers and trouble makers out there complaining about the status quo.

Collective Man: A Socialist Primer

By: Brent Parrish

It has been my experience over the past several years that quite a few people do not have a clue when it comes to describing and understanding the ideology and philosophy that underpins socialism and communism. To try and boil down the ideology of Marxian socialism into a sound-bite or a 500-word post, would be an exercise in futility. But there are some key concepts which will go a long way in at least better understanding the revolutionary and radical aspects of Marxism. The video above was produced during the mid-fifties and is actually a pretty decent synopsis of communist theory and political ideology in this regard.

Considering the far-leftward tilt of the Pope as of late, and the inability of  Democrat leaders to explain any difference between their platform and pure socialism (see below), and the lack of understanding concerning dialectical strategy by many on the right, I thought it might be “prudent at this juncture” to post the above video.

One of the fundamental concepts that must be understood, if one wishes to make sense out of the senseless, is the Marxist theory of dialectical and historical materialism (i.e. dialectics)—the materialistic view that all “progress” is brought about through the exploitation of tensions, struggles and conflict.

As Cleon Skousen wrote in his book The Naked Communist, any time you encounter the term “dialectics” you can just as easily replace the term with the word “conflict.” Part of the dialectical process entails pitting opposing forces against the other in order to bring about synthesis (a very popular term these days). Synthesis is often times synonymous with “compromise” and “consensus” (cf. bipartisanship) in this context.

The dialectical strategy in practice might entail the creation of “controlled opposition”—the formation of groups or organizations that appear to to be in direct opposition to one another; when, in fact, both “opposing” forces are working in concert toward the same predetermined outcome. The current two-party system that exists in the United States (i.e. right vs. left) is perfectly tailored for the application of the dialectical strategy.

For example, if the left wishes to move things in a more radical direction, they might create controlled opposition on the right that appears even more extreme than their own positions. As the “masses” start to move away from the left toward the right, they may move back toward the left under the belief that they are, at least, not as extreme as the right. This is evidenced by the radical left’s oft-used accusation against any group or individual that is strongly opposed to their agenda as being “Nazis” or “fascists.”

Racial agitation has long been a key component of the radical left’s political and social strategy, and was taught in such illustrious institutions as Lenin’s Institute for Higher Learning and Patrice Lumumba University in Moscow. A classic example of racial agitation and dialectical strategy in practice would be the Black Panthers versus the Ku Klux Klan. Radical agitators working from within both groups attempt to bring tensions to a boil in the hopes of creating open conflict between the two extremist factions. As the “masses” begin to scream and react to all the chaos and mayhem, the state can step in to provide a “solution”; either through the creation of more legislation (i.e. growing government power), or by the redistribution of wealth to targeted sectors—and so on.
