#QuittingTwitter Watch (Day Three): About @AceofSpadesHQ’s Nonsense

Ace said he’s quitting Twitter:

I’m a proud Twitter Quitter and my life has improved since I cut the progressive IV drip.

And he suggests you should too:

Blow Up Your FaceBook (And Twitter, I Assume) Account. Quit With Extreme Prejudice. …

Take control of your lives by ending your dependency on progressive institutions and time-wasting media indulgences.

Yeah! Do it, show us all how quitting Twitter is done! Lead us to the promise land, Ace!

…But Ace is sort of not quitting Twitter either:

My Easy Embargo Of Twitter

Easy Embargo?

I am not going to post anything from that second article other than the title, because it is all nonsense and bullshit. Basically Ace cares so little about Twitter and Facebook, that he is keeping his accounts open and active to “protect” his brand*.

When I called Ace out on his Attention Whoring hypocrisy, he called me an ankle-biting bottom-feeder and then blocked me. Ace must have had a change of heart on blocking me, because he unblocked me shortly afterward.

Then Ace continued to tweet and I told him what my gripe against him was all about.

I had noticed that Ace hadn’t tweeted, so I thought Ace was finally going to keep his original promise of quitting Twitter. I was wrong. Again calling me an ankle-biting bottom-feeder.

I ask you, how is my starting a fight with one of the more influential conservatives on the internet going to get me more followers? Ace leaving or staying on Twitter serves me no purpose.

Ace thinks that I place stock in my followers. If I did, I’d buy followers. I don’t give two fucks if you follow me (but I am becoming increasingly picky about who I follow back) or not, I am making no one do anything.

If Twitter or Facebook shuts down, I’ll just go find something else to do. If I get bored with Twitter or Facebook, I will move on. If I am banned from Twitter or Facebook, I’ll live (it isn’t like I have been banned from a site before).

Again my griped with Ace is that rank, attention seeking “Do As I Say, Not As I Do” hypocrisy. I know Twitter and Facebook is corrupt is hell, but you don’t see me telling others to get off those sites and then stay on to “keep up” my brand. I’m not accusing people of being addicts if they don’t want to quit Twitter. I don’t throw casual temper tantrums like a five-year-old.

One Last Point: There is no half-pregnant or a little pregnant. You are either pregnant or you are not. And you are either quitting Twitter or Facebook or your not. Ace is trying to justify staying on Twitter and Facebook with his “Easy Embargo” nonsense, pure and simple.

Well, see ya’ later!

#FLSen: The @AlanGrayson/@SenatorReid Fight, Round Two!

The “War Of Words” almost comes down to actual physical violence.

I’m sorry that my friend Moe Lane has forgone politics, because this newest Alan Grayson/Harry Reid development is just bloody fucking awesome and right up his ally:

Rep. Alan Grayson angrily confronted Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid on Wednesday, disrupting a meeting of the Congressional Progressive Caucus in front of dozens of staffers and members of Congress.

I could easily stop here. The summary of this story just tickles me to no end. However we must press on, because the details will just wonderful.

Grayson (D-Fla.), whose bid for the open Florida Senate seat Reid vehemently opposes, arrived at the meeting with Reid’s February statement in hand, according to two sources in the room. In that statement, Reid said Grayson has “no moral compass”…

Said the pot to the kettle:

Harry Reid, D-Nev. has no regrets about his 2012 claims that then presidential candidate Mitt Romney paid no taxes for 10 years.

The outgoing Senate Minority Leader even bragged to CNN that the comments, which had been described as McCarthyism, helped keep Romney from winning the election.

They can call it whatever they want. Romney didn’t win did he?” Reid said during a wide-ranging interview.

But, whatever. Moving on…

As each member took a turn to speak to Reid, it was Grayson’s turn. He asked Reid if the Nevada senator knows who he is. After Reid answered in the affirmative, Grayson went on the attack.

“Say my name, senator. Say my name,” Grayson told Reid…

…Err, Heisenberg?

Grayson responded by angrily waving a printout of Reid’s searing quote that called on Grayson to drop out of the primary race against Rep. Patrick Murphy (D-Fla.).

“Why’d you say that?” Grayson said, insisting Reid’s statement was false.

Reid calmly faced his inquisitor: “I want you to lose. It’s true.”

BOOM! There it is.

You know, there is a large contingent of grass-roots Republicans who think the party from on high wants to control who is nominated or not. That pails, however, for the open contempt Washington DC Democrats have for every day Democrats who have to fight it out in the trenches.

In a gaggle with reporters after the conflict blew up and sent shock waves through both sides of the Capitol, Grayson made clear that he believes a public battle with Reid – a “smearmonger” in his view – is to his advantage.

“Let’s face it, I’m not the establishment candidate. The establishment wants somebody who is a callow tool,” Grayson said. “As far as I can tell, the only criteria that the Democratic establishment has among Senate candidates this year is obedience. In that regard, perhaps I fall short.”

In a separate statement, Grayson called Murphy a “Republican sock puppet.”

Which is true. Rep. Patrick Murphy was a Republican until he “found” religion with the Democrats when he choose to capitalize on then-Senator Barack Obama’s win. If you are a Democrat and don’t think a Senator Murphy will betray you to President Trump, then I have a glass bridge in Dubai that I can cheaply sell you. At least with a Senator Alan Grayson, you know he’ll fight tooth and nail with President Trump and using his own game.

But what do I know. I am just a simple Republican.

Just for complete disclosure purposes, I fully endorse Lt Gov. Carlos Lopez-Cantera for the US Senate.

Well, see ya’ later!


#NeverHillary: Damage To #Palmyra Cannot Be Overstated

My good friend (at least I hope he is a good friend) Jazz Shaw covers the re-taking of Palmyra and ISIS/ISIL (as well as Bashar al-Assad) looting of the place. The damage to archaeology cannot be overstated.

However I cannot express how ultimate blame should be placed on Hillary Clinton’s blood-soak shoulders. Former New York City Mayor Rudy Guiliani explains:

By being part of an administration withdrew from Iraq. By being part of an administration that let (Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki) run Iraq into the ground, so you forced the Shiites to make a choice. By not intervening in Syria at the proper time. By being part of an administration that drew twelve lines in the sand and made a joke out of it,” (Former New York City Mayor Rudy) Guiliani said.

O’Reilly then pointed out that as secretary of state, Clinton was not personally responsible for the decisions, and that the most she could have done to compel Obama to change his policy was resign.

“Which is what a patriot does,” Giuliani said.

Now only that, but she then went on to heap praise on Bashar “A Reformer” al-Assad during the first few months of the Syrian Civil War:

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton… drew a contrast between Syrian President Bashir Assad and his late father and predecessor, and said U.S. lawmakers who recently have visited Damascus regarded him as a “reformer.”

She made the startling comment while explaining why the United States will not intervene on behalf of Syrian civilians revolting against the regime as it has done in the case of Libya.

And now, thanks to EmailGate, we know that Sidney Blumenthal warned Hillary Clinton to stop the “reformer” nonsense:

Longtime Clinton family confidante Sidney Blumenthal warned then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in 2011 that Syrian President Bashar Assad is no reformer.

“Enclosed is an article by David W. Lesch, perhaps the U.S. expert with the closest relationship with Bashar al-Assad, developed out of my continuing correspondence with him, an edited version which I have appended,” in a message to Clinton on June 20, 2011.The bottom line is that Assad’s gestures at reform are delusional attempts to recreate the pattern of his own recent past when he gained a modicum of respect from the West.

The same reformer who looted Palmyra well before ISIS/ISIL got their bloody paws on it.

The Bush Administration didn’t want to have anything to do with Bashar al-Assad after the Hariri assassination. The blood spilt in Syria’s Civil War and Palmyra’s destruction is all on Sec. Hillary Clinton, because she and President Barack Obama both bear full responsibility for what happen under their watch. Clinton as secretary of state was chief ambassador and foreign policy maker for Obama, so don’t tell me she isn’t responsible. And you can take that all the way to the bank.

Now Sec. Hillary Clinton wants to be president? Well, fuck that noise! #NeverHillary is greater than anything right now!

Well, see ya’ later!


The Swamp #49

Thank God I Don’t Have An iPhone!

The Swamp #49: Last Five! #GoingRed Talk And #NationalSecurity Debate! @EdMorrissey Guest!

I am very excited to have Ed Morrissey from on to talk about his book, Going Red! Which you can pre-order right now! We had a little tech glitch, but plow on through because we do get it corrected!

Then somehow got talking about the national security debate around the whole Apple vs FBI mess. I let Ed Morrissey go (because he had other stuff to do) and brought in Kat (now currently on Red Maryland) to finish up the awesome debate.

No read links today, because honestly who reads those anyway?

#KosKids: Another #FeelTheBern Edition

I like to start a feature where I take a look at the distorted views of the clinically insane. Or more commonly known to us on the right-side of the blogosphere, as the KosKids. They are the dedicated and brain-dead followers of Markos Moulitsas, and they have bought some prime real estate at the bottom of the rabbit hole. This feature will take a look at how far down they have gone. I am going to link them, but I beg you don’t click on them.

Just because you know how much I love Bernie Sanders! Let me count the ways!

Bernie for Treasury Secretary

…What not VP or SCOTUS, bjtognotti? Why aim so low? If this is about party unity, bid high and then you can come down.

I think this KosKid thinks that the Treasurer’s job is to go after banks all day long and so Bernie Sanders is perfect for that job. I guess then this makes some sense.

Bernie Sanders finally starts swinging at Hillary Clinton

If bjtognotti above was going for party unity, Egberto Willies is having none of it.

This KosKid thinks it is about time Bernie Sanders finally gone after Hillary Clinton. If you want a friend in politics, buy a dog. Does Sanders want to be POTUS or not?

Bernie Sanders Overtakes Clinton in Three More States, Clinton Supporters Worried in Texas

You think Sanders is down and out? notcinderella has just what you are looking for!

notcinderella takes a look at upcoming polls and there is bad news all around for Hillary Clinton. Bernie Sanders is leading now in Massachusetts, and Clinton is in trouble in California and Texas. We can only wait to see how this shakes out in those states.

Anyone having fun yet? I know I am excited about Bernie Sanders taking it all the way to the DNC Convention!

Well, see ya’ later!

#Election2016: The Great @HillaryClinton/@SenatorReid Slap Fight

See that? You see that? That’s #BlueVsBlue violence, son. Nothing else in the world is quite like that. I love reading about Blue Vs Blue violence in the morning.

With five days to go until the Nevada caucuses – once viewed as Hillary Clinton’s Western firewall – Sen. Harry Reid and his allies are incensed at the wounded Democratic frontrunner.

The reason: The Clinton campaign’s attempt to downgrade expectations there by whitewashing the diverse state.

The campaign’s recent assertion that Nevada is “still a state that is 80 percent white voters” – in other words, a state that looks alot like Bernie Sanders’ base – is simply wrong, Reid allies claim. But more galling than that, they say, it undermines the entire rationale for the caucuses’ existence – the state was only pushed to the front of the election calendar eight years ago because Reid lobbied for better demographic representation than the overwhelmingly white early-voting states like Iowa and New Hampshire.

You know, one time we had exposed Hillary Clinton’s emails. When it was all over the web, I walked up to my computer to spread the news. We didn’t find one of ’em, not one stinkin’ email that was on a State Department server. The smell, you know that desperation smell, the whole Hillary Clinton campaign. Smells like…

*tears start flowing from Gator’s eyes*

victory. Someday this election’s gonna end…

*Gator gets up from the computer, not able to type any more*

Well, see ya’ later!

#Trump2016: The @realDonaldTrump Holds Strong

There’s a theory out there that goes something like this: The more candidates drop out, the more support will go to someone other than Donald Trump.

Well, people have been dropping like flies and we are getting our first look at if this theory holds up. It really doesn’t:

Donald Trump – 42%
Ted Cruz – 20%
Marco Rubio – 15%

It does show trends and, while Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio have both benefited, it would seem that Donald Trump’s lead has not changed if only slightly. Trump still sits at a comfortable 22 points ahead of Cruz.

It now doesn’t matter if Donald Trump went batshit crazy last night, he can afford to lose a few points on the margins. Our embrace of Alex Jones and Rand Paul has left a libertarian foreign policy gap within the GOP, and it seems that Trump is more than willing to slide right into that role. I don’t like it any more than you do, but you know as well as I do a million fucking screaming (Ron/Rand) Paul Fans are going to start singing the love of Donald Trump and they are all Republicans now. It is now so crystal clear to me that we have indeed created Trump. And besides, high ideals on foreign policy crumble in the wake of reality.

I will however make you guys this promise: If Donald Trump loses South Carolina over this, then I swear to you I will immediately change my endorsement to whoever wins. You have my word.

Well, see ya’ later!

#Trump2016: New @realDonaldTump #JamielShaw Ad Is Brutal

There is time to unpack the debate last night and I will get to it, but I want to get into this ad that was just came out.

Brutal. Absolutely brutal. If you have not heard the painful story of Jamiel Shaw Jr.’s murder, it is simple enough:

The younger (Jamiel) Shaw was gunned down in 2008 in Arlington Heights by gang member Pedro Espinoza, who mistook the teen for a rival gang member because of the victim’s red Spider-Man backpack.

Espinoza jumped out of a vehicle and shot Shaw in the stomach before firing an execution-style shot to his head. In 2012, Espinoza – who was in the country illegally – received a death sentence for Shaw’s murder.

Jamiel Shaw Sr. is a strong advocate for Donald Trump. Here is Jamiel Shaw Sr., after being introduce by Trump, talking about his son’s death:

Now is Donald Trump has the right idea about immigration? Jamiel Shaw Sr. seems to think so. That is why Shaw Sr. has endorsed him.

The NY Times, notes this ad is similar to the infamous “Willie Horton” and how this will stand out:

The ad conveys a sense of menace without attacking any of the other Republicans in the race, and highlights a core argument of Mr. Trump’s campaign. It is in some ways evocative of the well-known “Willie Horton” ad that ran against the 1988 Democratic presidential nominee, Gov. Michael Dukakis of Masschusetts (sic). That ad, which featured a black man who killed a white person after being released from prison under a Dukakis administration program, was overtly racial; the Trump ad does not mention the nationality or background of the man convicted in the 2008 killing.

Regardless of how people view the politics of the immigration debate, the spot is certain to stand out amid a clutter of advertising on the South Carolina airwaves.

I agree. It’s super effective ad indeed. Couple with police officers endorsement of Donald Trump, you can’t help wonder that Trump will be the law enforcement guy. In a world descending into chaos, someone offering order is refreshing.

One more thing about the ad: Since the ad doesn’t attack other GOP candidates, Donald Trump can use the ad in the general election. Just saying.

Well, see ya’ later!


#FLSen: The Great @AlanGrayson/@SenatorReid Slap Fight

There’s nothing more trilling than two morally challenged, white-male Democrats bitch slapping each other over …ethics.

Let’s set the stage here. Rep. Alan Grayson has been caught leading a double life as a Hedge Fund Manager, on the Cayman Islands. Now it is far from me to criticizing anyone who wants to make a buck, which is basically why I only tweeted about the subject. I just don’t like Rep. Alan Grayson’s politics.

(Via Hot Air) However Senator Harry Reid has taken exception to Rep Alan Grayson running for U.S. Senate:

U.S. Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid on Friday called for U.S. Rep. Alan Grayson to drop out of the race for a Senate seat in Florida.

Reid said in a statement that Grayson claims to be progressive but seems to have “no moral compass.” He said Grayson used his office to unethically promote a hedge fund that until recently had been based in the Cayman Islands. …

“His actions aren’t just disgraceful to the Democratic Party, they disgrace the halls of Congress,” Reid said.

Moral compass? Ethics? Says the man who lied on the Senate floor to throw an election:

Harry Reid, D-Nev. has no regrets about his 2012 claims that then presidential candidate Mitt Romney paid no taxes for 10 years.

The outgoing Senate Minority Leader even bragged to CNN that the comments, which had been described as McCarthyism, helped keep Romney from winning the election.

They can call it whatever they want. Romney didn’t win did he?” Reid said during a wide-ranging interview.

Senator Harry Reid needs to make that self-awareness roll again, because he keeps failing it.

Of course, Mr. Florida Beastmode is not going to take this lying down:

Suggesting that Reid “may well prefer corrupt Establishment errand boy” and rival Democrat Rep. Patrick Murphy (D-Fla.), Grayson excoriated the retiring Nevada Senator in an email to Independent Journal Review:

I’m running against a rigged system and the Washington Establishment, so it’s no surprise that its departing figurehead, who failed so badly in the 2014 Senate races, relies on a false and misleading hyped story to try to pressure me out of this race. The reason why he is making such an absurd statement at all is that he knows that I’m well ahead in the polls, and heading for a strong primary victory.” …

“Sen. Reid managed to find a way to lose six out of seven open Senate seats in 2014, and lose six incumbent Democrats when the GOP lost none. Now he is personally attacking the clear choice of Florida Democrats, making the party into a circular firing squad.”

Yeah! You tell that has-been Senator Reid a thing or two, Rep. Grayson! Don’t let them suppress you! You are better than that, Grayson! No one tells Alan Grayson to go home or shut-up! Florida picks its nominees and not some Washington DC winkle-old white guy and Establishment errand boy! Show them were the sun shines, here in Florida and not DC!

Er… Sorry about that. Got excited. As a side note, I fully endorse Lt Gov. Carlos Lopez-Cantera for the US Senate.

Well, see ya’ later!
