Jimmy Kimmel, Oscar Host, Leftist Idiot, and J6 Liar

The J6 Committee version of what transpired, indeed their entire proceedings, was nothing but cherry-picking

Published

on

Jimmy Kimmel is known for many things, but truth telling, objectivity, and maintaining perspective are not among them. Using one of the world’s biggest platforms, in other words, hosting the Oscars, he uncorked a whale of a lie that made Leftists everywhere so very happy.

Targeting Tucker Carlson, late in the Academy Awards show last night, Kimmel lampooned the Fox News host without actually naming him. Kimmel implied that Carlson has cherry-picked film footage to reveal that the J6 protest event was largely peaceful – which, among hundreds of thousands of protestors, it largely was.

A Zinger of a Lie

As he introduced the category of the film editing, Kimmel impudently said, “Anyone who’s ever received a text message from their father knows how important editing is. Editors do amazing things. Editors can turn 44,000 hours of violent insurrection footage into a respectful sight-seeing tour of the Capitol.”

The woke-filled audience offered long and resounding laughter and applause. If we back up for a moment, however, the absurdity of Kimmel’s quip becomes obvious: Has Kimmel watched even 1,000 of the 44,000 hours? 100 hours? 10 hours? Even 1 hour of footage that was not cherry-picked by the J6 Select Committee?

Does Kimmel have any idea that the J6 Committee engaged in highly selective film editing of their own? Does he know that committee member Bennie Thompson recently confirmed that committee members did not watch the footage and that they delegated they assignment to their various staffs?

A Favor to History

Did Kimmel not hear Tucker Carlson say many times that the film footage he was airing was  offering a more balanced view off what occurred? And that many Carlson has said that rioters or vandalizers should be dealt with accordingly?

When House Speaker Kevin McCarthy yielded the surveillance footage to Carslon, McCarthy did the nation, the world, and history a great favor. Without such an act, we would only have the J6 Committee version of what transpired. Their version, indeed their entire proceedings, was nothing but cherry-picking.

Don’t tell that to Jimmy Kimmel, the Oscar audience, or Leftist everywhere, however. They “know” what the saw, and they are quite content, even gleeful, to let their lie-filled narrative reign supreme.

The Operatives Reign Supreme

Does Kimmel know that scores of government operatives deftly blended in with the crowd and that they intentionally emulated the dress and demeanor of Trump supporters? Does he know that uniformed officials fired tear gas, not near the crowd, INTO the crowd, deliberately, to provoke them?

Does he know that Ray Epps and other encouraged the crowd to become rowdy and force their way into the Capitol? Does he know that Epps bragged about his role to his nephew afterward? Does he know that the J6 Committee declined to grill Epps about his role. Indeed, they let him off the hook, unlike what they did with hundreds of others, namely civilians, who played lessor roles.

Does Kimmel and his approving audience care about the lawful treatment of those who have been accused? This is supposed to be the United States of America, the land of the free and the home of the brave; the nation which immigrants from around the world yearn to reach; the beacon of democracy and the shining example on Earth of a free people in a free land.

The Rights We Hold

America was founded based on a constitution and amendments that guarantee rights to the individual; a republic where laws prevail, to be dispensed impartially; where unlawful search and seizure is not permitted; and where due process matters.

Despite all of this, the J6 Committee and the Biden Administration have acted in ways unprecedented in our history. It is treating those people who inhabited the U.S. Capitol on January 6th as if they are murderous terrorists. The people that Biden is holding, in some cases for months, and now years, in solitary confinement, are being denied their fundamental rights as American citizens.

It is only fitting that justice is served before, during, and long after the legal proceedings for any of the incarcerated. The corrupt Biden Administration and it’s incalculably undemocratic, unlawful, and despicable approach to administering ‘justice’ is stifling attempts to ensure that these incarcerated individuals receive lawful and constitutional protections.

With Impunity

Joe Biden, the total political puppet that he is, and his handlers, know full well about the kind of treasonous behavior in which they are engaged. They feel all-powerful however, and they are not concerned. They’ve got Jimmy Kimmel, the Oscar audience, the sycophantic press, and multi-millions of gullible Democrats, liberals, and progressives on their side.

Will Democrats Do What They Must?

Published

on

On a warm August evening in 1974, President Richard M. Nixon said from the Oval Office that he was resigning, becoming the first president to do so. He confessed that he no longer had “a strong enough political base in the Congress” to finish his term.

Sen. Barry Goldwater, Ariz., the 1964 GOP presidential nominee, was a respected conservative leader in a Senate whose Republican ranks were less conservative than now. In a May 1973 interview with Time magazine, Goldwater had given an early warning, “If it can be proved that he (Nixon) lied, resignation would have to be considered. It would be quick. Everything would be over, ended. It wouldn’t drag out like impeachment.”

At a regular Senate Republican Conference lunch on august 6 of 1974, Goldwater had fumed: “There are only so many lies you can take, and now there has been one too many. Nixon should get his ass out of the White House today!” When he went to see President Nixon, Goldwater confided, “There’s not more than 15 senators for you.” After that showdown, the curtain on President Nixon’s presidency came down three days later.

In this challenging time in our history when President Biden’s competency is under serious question, will Democrat leaders have the courage to do the same? With this report, more Democrats and Independents will be less inclined to vote for Biden. That may very well impact the future of many Democrat politicians whose own election could be impacted if their voting base stays home. After his Wednesday night address, the evidence that Biden is in trouble is plainly obvious.

President Biden’s poll numbers are now at an all time low. The shocking Department of Justice Special Counsel Robert Hur report suggests that Biden should not be indicted because Biden is “a sympathetic, well-meaning, elderly man with a poor memory” that a jury would be unlikely to convict. The Special Counsel also noted that Biden “willfully retained and disclosed classified materials after his vice presidency when he was a private citizen;” he noted that such actions “present serious risks to national security.” It is clearly a risk for Biden to remain in office.

When President Biden addressed the country after the report was disclosed, he asserted that his memory was fine, and the report confirms that he was not indicted and did nothing wrong. His comments to the press questions were combative and defensive. He took no personal responsibility, blaming his staff for the faulty storage of classified documents. His message was strident and clear-Trump is guilty, and I did nothing wrong.

If he is not competent to stand trial for his actions, how can he be confident enough to remain president? It’s time for a private confrontation by Democrat leadership. If Biden does not listen, it is time to exercise the 25th amendment option to remove him from office.

It is not easy to use that 25th Amendment option. It is even more difficult with only 9 months before a critical national election. Waiting until the Democrat Convention in August leaves little time to right the ship and promote a replacement candidate.

Democrats, do your job to clean out your own house. President Biden is not competent to meet the challenges of our time. Do it now or pay the price in November. As Republicans, we hope you let Biden remain your candidate, but that is selfish. President Biden is our current leader and his decisions impact all of us and a world in turmoil. This isn’t about politics. We can’t afford even eleven more months of a mentally incompetent President.

Getting Beyond our Convenient Political Narratives

Published

on

There is only one movie up for Oscars that I have any interest in seeing win, “American Fiction.” This movie has the guts to call out all liberal media, book publishers, and Hollywood producers who have made it clear that the only narratives they will allow to be seen support their woke worldview.

In “American Fiction,” an author snubbed by publishers because his novels are not “black” enough decides to play a joke on the publishing industry by changing his identity to a fugitive who writes in graphic terms about what it’s “supposed to be” like to be a “black” in America. The book fits the liberal narrative and earns the author an offer of $750,000, a new movie contract, and award consideration. He’s disgusted by the liberal bias but plays along only to see a disturbing reality play out. The truth is that it pays to support liberal narratives.

Most of the Oscar nominations and comments at the ceremony prove a left-wing bias every year. That’s why fewer and fewer conservatives even watch. Where is the consideration for popular movies like “Sound of Freedom” or “Boys in the Boat?” They don’t fit the Left narratives that “nothing bad comes across an open border” or “nothing good comes out of America.”

It’s true that we all tend to fall victim to “selective scanning.” It’s tempting to search for information sources that reinforce what we want to believe. Both sides of the divide tend to say the same thing—“If you knew the ‘facts,’ you would know the ‘truth,’ ‘OK, my truth!’” Both sides of any divide have a narrative with “facts” and “expert opinion” to back their position.

There are numerous examples of well-defended narratives that keep America divided:

The COVID Vaccines are good for you vs. The COVID Vaccines have the potential to do more harm than good (You can find some research and anecdotal evidence that vaccines work and similar evidence that some people have died or developed serious illnesses).

Climate Change will result in man’s destructive vs. Climate Change has multiple causes, and we can do little to change (Clearly, there is evidence of man doing damage to the environment, and there is evidence that there have been extended warm and cold periods throughout earth’s existence with or without man).

Entitlement Programs are essential to help those who can’t help themselves. Entitlement Programs foster government dependency and prevent self-sufficiency (It’s true that people need help, but it is best provided by a distant government bureaucracy or by family, friends, and local charities who can access needs and provide focused assistance and support).

Undocumented Aliens should receive government assistance and have a path to citizenship; Illegal Aliens have committed crimes and should be deported (There is evidence that some who have crossed the open border have committed terrible crimes, but it’s also true that some have been good workers with strong family values).

Both leading candidates for the 2024 Presidential election are loved and hated. They have counter-narratives depending on your side of the divide.

The left’s Trump narrative is predictable. Once elected, President Trump will be a “dictator,” “seek revenge,” “be fatal to the American experiment,” “a felon,” and “a threat to democracy.” In Short, the left’s message is simple, “Trump is dangerous for America and should be in jail.”

The right’s narrative couldn’t be more different. President Trump will “restore America,” “ensure our freedoms,” “destroy the deep state,” and “defend the Constitution.” In short, “Trump’s been victimized by politicized accusations and will save the America we love if he can just be elected.” Both can find statements from Trump’s speeches and past actions to attempt to justify their claims.

To the right, President Biden is “senile,” a “bumbling idiot,” “too old,” “an un-American traitor,” “a ‘big guy” crook,” and “dangerous to the future of America and should be impeached and in jail.” To the left, Biden has “helped keep America open to immigrants,” “helped prevent a climate calamity,” “provides necessary benefits for minorities,” “makes the rich pay their fair share,” and “is the only person in the way of a rightwing dictatorship.” Both views can find ammunition to support their claims.

Notice that neither side likes you to watch a whole speech. They want you to see just the clips and evidence that reinforce their own narratives about the candidate. Welcome to soundbite politics!

The 2024 election is too important for our future to be left with biased narratives about two candidates. It is not just the President that you elect; it is the people and the policies they bring with them that will determine the course for America’s future.

Instead of limiting yourself to biased narratives, there is much to consider in making an informed decision on who to elect. Both candidates have a record to look at. What are their major accomplishments? Do you support what they did as President? Now, look to the future. Join those who are demanding that both parties lay out their Contract with America. What are the top five promises and priorities for each party?

Let’s get beyond the name-calling and demand that they come before the people to debate the issues that matter most. Both these candidates are more than the narratives we have created. Let’s hear from them directly and then vote. To do less is not responsible citizenship and is detrimental to the future of our amazing country.
