Gavin Newsom wins, but California loses
Post Date: 2021-09-15 20:35:57 by tankumo
The lopsided defeat of the effort to recall Governor Gavin Newsom in California assures that, for the foreseeable future, the progressive gentry and their public sector allies remain firmly in charge of the worlds most important technology and mass entertainment economy. Yet if things look good now for the coiffed Chief Executive, they may be taking a turn for the worse in the years ahead. It certainly means hard times for the states middle and working classes. Newsoms win will lead to ever more stringent energy policies that have already decimated the states industrial sector. Ever since California decided to lead the war against climate change in the ...
Very Concerning Evidence of Vote Fraud in California Recall Election
Post Date: 2021-09-14 20:31:51 by tankumo
Absentee ballots remain the largest source of potential voter fraud. That quote isnt from Republican gubernatorial candidate Larry Elder. Its the conclusion of the bipartisan 2005 report of the Commission on Federal Election Reform, chaired by former President Jimmy Carter and former Secretary of State James Baker III. There is increasing evidence of vote fraud in the California recall election. Torrance, California Police found 300 recall ballots and multiple California drivers licenses in a felons car. In the San Fernando Valley, election officials are telling Republican voters that they have already voted. At one precinct in Woodland Hills, election ...
The Media's Shameless Shielding of Joe Biden

The Media's Shameless Shielding of Joe Biden(AP Photo/Susan Walsh) In 2019, I wrote a book called The Media Matrix and subtitled it pessimistically, What If Everything You Know Is Fake? Now, two years later, we can remove the question mark. Everything you know is fake if you depend on the mainstream media to educate you. Everywhere you turn, you will encounter coverup, corruption and confusion in the media. If it isnt an intentional disinformation campaign, then its the result of laziness and stupidity. Either way, the fourth estate has become a fifth column of provocateurs and saboteurs. Examples abound. Two weeks ago, for instance, I ...
Â‘He shouldnÂ’t be lecturing anybody!Â’: Trump blasts Bush over Capitol riot remark on 9/11
Post Date: 2021-09-13 20:39:17 by tankumo
Former President Donald Trump on Monday lashed out at George W. Bush for his 9/11 20th anniversary speech in which he appeared to compare the Jan. 6 rioters to foreign terrorists, saying the 43rd president, who was in office when the 9/11 attacks happened, shouldnt be lecturing anybody! So interesting to watch former President Bush, who is responsible for getting us into the quicksand of the Middle East (and then not winning!), as he lectures us that terrorists on the right are a bigger problem than those from foreign countries that hate America, and that are pouring into our Country right nowȀ ...
Biden’s disastrous handling of Afghanistan cast a cloud over this 9/11 anniversary
Post Date: 2021-09-12 14:50:00 by tankumo
We didnt want to talk about it on the day itself, but what a cloud President Joe Biden managed to cast over the 20th anniversary of 9/11. Hed clearly intended his Afghan pullout to allow a triumphant speech on the 20th anniversary of the worlds deadliest terrorist strike. But he was so determined to make political hay from ending Americas longest war as the country commemorated the attack that sparked it that he instead wrought a national humiliation. Notably, Biden extended the deadline for exiting right into the combat season, allowing the Taliban to plan an offensive that made it look like they were driving America into retreat. Then, as the Afghan army ...
Spicer: Removal From Military Board Is Partisan Blacklisting
Post Date: 2021-09-10 20:39:35 by tankumo
In an unprecedented move, President Biden requested the resignation of 18 former Trump administration officials, including myself, who were appointed to serve on the Board of Visitors of the Naval Academy, West Point, and the Air Force Academy. In its partisan blacklisting of political opponents, the Biden administration has broken with tradition of previous presidents. In a Wednesday press briefing, White House press secretary Jen Psaki called into question the qualifications of me and everyone else appointed by President Trump. These statements and actions have nothing to do with my qualifications or the qualifications of anyone else the president is ousting. For the past year, the ...
Democrats' Policies Are a Gift to China
Post Date: 2021-09-08 20:17:32 by tankumo
China's leaders must be trading high-fives as they watch the American left push policies that will cripple American competitiveness. While China is cracking down on students wasting time on video games, America's racial equity warriors are trying to ban advanced placement math, competitive entrance exams and school honor rolls. Americans don't want their government to wield power over how kids spend out-of-school time, but they also don't want their children discouraged from pursuing excellence. It's a recipe for personal failure and national decline. On the economic front, congressional Democrats are trying to ram through President Joe Biden's tax plan, which ...
Joe Biden Is a Total Failure
Post Date: 2021-09-08 01:38:33 by tankumo
As cant and emotionalism subside, it is becoming possible to give a clear and fair assessment of the performance of the Biden Administration and of the president himself: a total failure. The shortfall of 500,000 in the expected net new job figures for August shows that stagflation is upon us: employers are afraid to hire employees as they normally would coming out of the COVID recession because they dont know if they will be able to afford them. Hourly pay scales are increasing at 7.5 percent, new car prices at 10 percent, rental accommodation at 12 percent, and new homes at 20 percent, all well ahead of the official rate of inflation, contrary to the smug assurances of Treasury ...
Why most Americans no longer honor unions on Labor Day
Post Date: 2021-09-06 13:05:46 by tankumo
Labor Day was once the nations most blatantly political national holiday created by the trade-union movement to celebrate the right of working people to bargain collectively and to stage strikes to press their demands. But no more, for good reason. Even before Congress created the federal holiday in 1894, New York hosted the nations first Labor Day parade as 10,000 workers took off from their jobs to march from City Hall to Union Square. As the movement grew, so did the parades and celebrations. How times have changed. Today, Labor Day is largely an occasion for sales, end-of-summer cookouts and back-to-school preparations. Why? Because the movement has become as ...
Things are bad in California and seem to be getting worse for Gov. Newsom
Post Date: 2021-09-05 14:28:46 by tankumo
Gavin Newsom is in trouble. Democrats hold a nearly two-to-one advantage in voter registration in California. Governor Newsom has the power of incumbency. In the General Assembly, 59 of the 80 seats are held by Democrats. In the state Senate, 31 of the 40 seats are held by Democrats. A Republican has not won a statewide race for the United States Senate in more than 30 years. Yet, Newsom is facing a tight recall election coming up on September 14. Most pundits thought recall organizers would never get the required signatures. Then they assumed the signatures would get thrown out. Then they predicted the huge margins for Democrats would ensure a blowout for Governor Newsom. Two weeks out, ...

Can Americans still beat Democrat voter fraud?
Post Date: 2021-09-04 12:49:13 by tankumo
The Democrats are the party of voter fraud. This is the basic fact of American politics. Republicans know it, and so do Democrats. We all know that the dead who vote always vote for the Democrat and that those voting enthusiasts who vote early and often can also be counted on to vote for the Democrat. Consequently, the rule in America has long been that to be elected, a Republican must win beyond the margin of theft. But the margin is changing. It is changing because the Democrats are getting bolder and more brazen. The extent of this brazenness is soon to be unveiled in Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania as their state audits unfold. In 2020, the Democrats went wild. ...
Joe Biden Is Lying To Americans About Afghanistan
Post Date: 2021-09-03 20:50:38 by tankumo
Earlier this week, this writer addressed the Biden administrations instinctive lying on matters big and small, concluding: When the president allows his key advisors lie to us about a dog bite, the only confidence the American people can have is that he will not be honest with us about these and other life-and-death matters if the truth would hurt his poll numbers or endanger Democrats reelection chances. Regrettably, recent events confirm that the presidents deceptions and misstatements are intentional and driven by political motives. This was confirmed by multiple events, some the very next day after the previous article published. The first confirming ...
Biden's Job Approval Has Entered Dangerous Territory

Biden's Job Approval Has Entered Dangerous Territory ANALYSIS .By Sean Trende - RCP StaffSeptember 02, 2021 Biden's Job Approval Has Entered Dangerous Territory(AP Photo/Evan Vucci) In 1880, Americans did something momentous: They all elected their congressional delegations in the same year. Prior to that, elections had been a hodgepodge affair. For example, the first elections for the 28th Congress, which ostensibly met from 1843 to 1845, were held in Missouri on Aug. 1, 1842. But only five other states held elections that year; almost all other states held them over the course of the odd numbered year of 1843. Maryland finally got around to holding its elections on Feb. 14, 1844, ...
The White House Hopes We Can All Forget Afghanistan (And The Press Will Help)
Post Date: 2021-09-01 20:24:34 by tankumo
Look, weve closed the chapter on Afghanistan. And now were committed to America. We want to put the past behind us and are committed to build back better and infrastructure. We want to focus on people, on jobs, on working-class Americans struggling to pay the bills. Were not dwelling on the past. None of these are quotes yet. Already by the time you read this, that might have changed. Because even while the frantic Kabul evacuation effort was ongoing the White House preferred to talk about anything at all other than their deadly and disastrous retreat. And we all heard Tuesday afternoons angry, 20-minute speech by the ...
Conrad Black: Evicting Donald Trump was clearly a catastrophe
Post Date: 2021-08-31 20:21:13 by tankumo
Seven months into the Biden regime, the truism that dare not speak its name is now almost too obvious to bear stating. It was a catastrophic error to evict Donald Trump. No one, and certainly not I, would try to whitewash the stylistic infelicities of Donald Trump. He said many things that were toe-curlingly embarrassing coming from the holder of so great an office. But he proved in government as he had in the private sector that he was capable and forceful, and although he had the terrible handicap of personalizing everything and escalating all disagreements, he had a clear conception of domestic and foreign national interests and pursued them very successfully. Despite the frenzied, ...
Joe Biden’s Presidency Has Gone Off The Rails And The Democratic Party Will Pay For It
Post Date: 2021-08-30 20:46:13 by tankumo
Well, I certainly picked the wrong week to go on vacation. Normally you dont have to worry about much going down news-wise in August, so Ive typically taken a week there and the week after Christmas off in nearly a decade of writing this newsletter
and I cannot think of a single time Ive done that where I felt more absent or overwhelmed by the amount of news I saw flying by every single day. Today the White House faces a massive crush of challenges, both thanks to the world and of their own making. Their pandemic response has stalled, and theyre desperately throwing out impotent mandate threats their vaunted plans proven incapable of returning the ...
Our military and our allies no longer trust Biden
Post Date: 2021-08-28 21:12:25 by tankumo
President Biden has lost the trust of the military, our allies and the American people. In April, the president promised that troops would come home from Afghanistan responsibly, deliberately, and safely, downplaying any risk associated with withdrawal. Today, he says the evacuation of thousands of people from Kabul was going to be hard and painful no matter when it started, when we began. After a Kabul airport attack that killed 13 American servicemen, at least 90 Afghans, Biden has done nothing but deflect responsibility for the biggest foreign policy blunder in decades. Even as the president was telling ................
As Newsom Recall Vote Looms, Corporations Are Fleeing California On The Double
Post Date: 2021-08-27 20:25:55 by tankumo
California voters have started casting their ballots on their second gubernatorial recall ever and their first in 18 years, deciding whether to give Democrat Gov. Gavin Newsom a new lease on his political life. Polling shows the recall on a knifes edge. At the time of this writing, Yes remove narrowly leads with 48 percent of Californians polled, while 46 percent plan to vote No. Both are within the polls margin of error. If the recall passes, whoever has the most votes on the second question will replace Newsom, with longtime conservative radio talk show host Larry Elder out front with a lead of 11 percent. I was running for the ...
Panicked Democrats switch from 'defund' to 'refund' the police
Post Date: 2021-08-26 20:32:02 by tankumo
It was short, and it wasnt sweet. a man wearing a suit and tie© Provided by Washington Examiner The Democratic Partys quest to defund police forces, an act in which it kowtowed to its hard-left-wing base, has come to a very bitter end. The resulting surge in violent crime has produced a massive public backlash that threatens the careers of elected Democrats throughout the nation. Naturally, the endangered species is trying to distance itself swiftly from the wreckage that defund the police has left behind. The mayors of Portland and Seattle, who respectively slashed police funding by $15 million and $7.5 million last year, are now moving to restore those ...
Enough is Enough: Antifa Attacks Reporter in Portland
Post Date: 2021-08-25 20:37:23 by tankumo
This past Sunday, while covering a protest in Portland, Oregon for our video partner News2Share, a reporter named Maranie Staab was attacked by members of an Antifa-affiliated group. After complaining about a report shed done in Colombia in conjunction with TK News, they maced her, shot paint at her, and threw her to the ground. The backdrop for this scene was explained to TK readers this past weekend in our latest episode of Activism, Uncensored called The Great American Fistfight. After a series of violent street clashes between left and right activists in Los Angeles, right-wing protesters planned a United We Win rally in Portland, Oregon for ...
The Afghanistan Debacle Is Exposing President Biden’s Descent Into Unreality
Post Date: 2021-08-24 20:21:41 by tankumo
Americans are stranded in Afghanistan. Thats a fact. You dont have to have special military clearance to know it, or access to classified information, or be in contact with Americans in Kabul or elsewhere in Afghanistan. All you have to do is follow the news. For days now, reports coming out of Afghanistan have chronicled the dire situation of Americans unable to get to the airport in Kabul, unable to get past Taliban checkpoints outside the airport, and unable to get through the airport gates because of the desperate and sometimes deadly mobs gathered there. Members of Congress are even sharing information on social media about Americans trapped in Kabul, some of them ...
The Only Way Back To Deterrence Is Firing Biden’s Entire National Security Team
Post Date: 2021-08-23 20:22:29 by tankumo
The Talibans seizure of Afghanistan emboldened by President Joe Bidens senseless decision to rush U.S troops out of the country without a plan blindsided the Afghan government, the Afghan military, and Americas allies. This reckless decision has led to bipartisan criticism in the United States and from our global allies, and ridicule by Americas adversaries. Bidens attempts to blame everyone but himself for this fiasco, his refusal to take press questions for nearly a week (except from sycophantic George Stephanopoulos), and his decision to hide at Camp David while these events unfolded have only intensified criticism. As commander-in-chief, ...
Biden’s Afghanistan withdrawal shows a disengaged, befuddled president
Post Date: 2021-08-22 14:25:12 by tankumo
Shortly after President Biden on Friday claimed that Americans had safe passage to the Kabul airport, and the Taliban werent harassing anyone, Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin told members of Congress that some Americans trying to escape had been beaten by the Taliban. The next day, the US Embassy in Kabul said it wasnt safe to go to the airport. Which leaves two possibilities: Biden lied. Biden doesnt know. Its likely the latter. Its not that Biden doesnt lie, its that all of his statements and actions of the past week show a disengaged, befuddled president who doesnt care about Americans and their allies in Afghanistan. He has waved away ...
When black Americans choose where to live, they choose GOP-run Texas, Florida, and Georgia
Post Date: 2021-08-21 12:45:38 by tankumo
If you consult the likes of Paul Krugman or MSNBC, you'll hear that Texas, Florida, and Georgia are failed states, run into the ground by right-wing ideologues. Krugman points to Texas as an indicator of the moral and intellectual collapse of American conservatism. Democratic former congressman Beto ORourke has produced headlines such as this: "Beto O'Rourke: 'We are nearing a failed state in Texas' due to Republican leaders." And if you like Georgia, Texas, or Florida, its probably because youre a white racist who likes white supremacist policies, the narrative goes. It might be jarring, then, for these New York-based commentators ...
