Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke: Mainstream Media Now Democrats’ ‘Propaganda Wing’ As Trump Defends Nation

Let’s turn our attention north of the “Cheddar Curtain” now. Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke, Jr., appeared on FOX News Saturday morning and really let the mainstream media and opponents of strengthening the borders/homeland security have it. On the sparring between President Trump and the mainstream media, Sheriff Clarke informed FOX & Friends Weekend viewers:

Well, first of all, the mainstream media, The New York Times, The Washington Post, CNN, MSNBC- they have become the propaganda wing of the Democrat Party and of leftist ideology. They abandoned their responsibility under the Constitution, their First Amendment protection. And we want them to have First Amendment protection but we don’t want it to be used against people whose political views they don’t agree with or that they oppose. They’re supposed to be a watchdog but instead what they have become, like I said, is an echo chamber for leftist ideology. So I think it’s good because the media has changed. And organizations like The New York Times, The Washington Post, and others do not realize that this is a new media age and every person in the United States now is their own reporter. And that is competition to them as well and they don’t like it.

On President’s Trump’s initiatives to protect the nation’s borders and strengthen homeland security, Clarke said:

First of all, I’m tired of these one-percenters like Mark Zuckerberg and others lecturing us about who we are. I know who I am, and most Americans know who we are. We are a sovereign nation. If you’re going to be a sovereign nation, you have to have borders and you have to protect those borders. Mark Zuckerberg has no idea of who’s coming into this country and what it takes to vet those individuals. I as a law enforcement officer- I’m in my 39th year- we do a lot of vetting of people. I know how it’s done. But you have to have databases with which to compare. So you take a name, someone coming in as a refugee. And we’re not talking about the kids. I’m tired of all this crocodile tears about the kids, the poor kids coming. We’re not talking that. We’re talking about abled-bodied, grown men, fighting-age, that should be back in Syria and back in the Middle East fighting for their country coming over to the United States to spread jihad. So that’s who we’re talking about. But if you don’t have a database, someone gives you a name, and you don’t have a database in Syria, because they don’t have the record systems and the databases like we have with people- you have nothing to compare it to. So they give you a name and you look and there’s nothing there. That doesn’t mean that they’re safe to come in. So Donald Trump is right on this. And I hope that the rest of the people in Washington, D.C., realize that this thing is a mess and we have to get our arms around it. And at least President Donald Trump recognizes that…

What’s interesting is former President Barack Obama said that they were already doing it. So if he said- and they weren’t- but if he said they were already doing it, and now President Donald Trump comes along and says we’re doing it and now these same people who said, “Well, hey, Barack Obama’s taking care of it”- these same people are now being critical of it. The hypocrisy of this is profound. But, President Donald Trump understands that his first obligation is to defend and protect American citizens, and defend and protect America from foreign threats. That is his first and most important obligation. So he is rising up to that. And people should be proud of that. It makes me feel more secure that finally, somebody understands that the defense of this nation is government’s number one priority.

Illinois State Rifle Association: ‘Good Riddance’ Barack Obama

A January 20 press release from the Illinois State Rifle Association (“dedicated to education, safety training and support of Illinois firearm owners”) is making the rounds on the Internet. Executive Director Richard Pearson penned:

ISRA: Goodbye Barack… Hello Donald

“About eight years ago, I penned a letter to gun owners nationwide about my experiences lobbying Barack Obama when he was an Illinois State Senator. Among the adjectives, I used to describe Senator Obama were arrogant, rude, self-righteous, indignant and aloof. I warned gun owners that an Obama presidency would cast the darkest of days upon supporters of our Second Amendment. I advised gun owners that the only hope for preserving gun rights would be a sustained pushback against Obama’s attempts to obliterate civilian firearm ownership.

There was never any doubt in my mind that Obama would seek to crush the Second Amendment. Obama entered office with the very firm intention of satisfying the globalist ideal of knocking America down a couple of pegs. Thus, in no time at all, President Obama attacked two great American icons – General Motors and our superlative health care system. Next on his plate was an assault on the uniquely American sense of rugged individualism. As we all know, self-reliance is predicated upon the existence of the Second Amendment. Plain and simple – without a Second Amendment, individualism is just a fantasy. Yes, early in his tenure, Barack Obama was achieving his objective of making America more like the rest of the world rather than encouraging the rest of the world to be more like us.

When Obama charged headlong into the gun control fray, he was met with stubborn and determined opposition from everyday gun owners. We fought him in Congress. We fought him in the federal courts. We fought him in the court of public opinion. In the end, the good guys won and the promise of a nation-wide version of Chicago-style gun control faded into irrelevance. For that, gun owners owe themselves a hearty pat on the back.

Now enters Donald Trump- President Donald Trump. Trump has made a lot of promises to gun owners and I hope he keeps them. Copious promises notwithstanding, the nation’s gun owners must remain mobilized and prepared to fight the gun control movement whether the battle is at the national, state, or local level. The fight for gun rights is not over and will never be over.

In closing, I’d like to bid Barack Obama “good riddance,” and wish President Trump well in the monumental job he is about to undertake.”

The ISRA is the state’s leading advocate of safe, lawful and responsible firearms ownership. For more than a century, the ISRA has represented the interests of millions of law-abiding Illinois firearm owners.

CNN: Inauguration Day ‘Disaster Could Put Obama Cabinet Member In Oval Office’

And here I was thinking the local PBS station (WTTW11 Chicago) airing a show Saturday night about JFK’s assassination was in “bad taste.” From CNN yesterday:

Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel To ‘Kneel Before Zod’- Donald J. Trump?

The editorial board at Crain’s Chicago Business published the following about Chicago’s impending loss of clout in Washington, D.C., on the Crain’s website this past Saturday:

Chicago residents, regardless of their personal politics, are going to miss having one of their own in the White House.

As President Barack Obama moves on to his post-presidential life, he takes with him the last vestiges of our once-formidable clout in the nation’s capital. Chicagoans have become accustomed to the idea that, with the right connections, they can be just a phone call away from the highest levels of power. With the incoming Trump administration, that’s about to change

(Editor’s note: Bold added for emphasis)

Regular readers of Survival And Prosperity may recall what I blogged back on December 7:

If readers still don’t think there will be repercussions to Chicago from a Trump administration despite its unabashed support for Hillary Clinton on Election Day (the Democrat received 83.63% of the city’s votes on Election Day), its official policy of providing “sanctuary” to illegal aliens, and political grandstanding (Trump’s honorary street signs downtown were removed this past weekend, courtesy of the City Council), then consider what was published on the Bloomberg website yesterday:

“Chicago Faces Political Power Outage as Trump Succeeds Obama”

Chicago is racing the clock.

Nowhere will political power evaporate more dramatically at noon on Jan. 20 than in the third-largest U.S. city, a bastion of Democratic power that’s enjoyed special access to Washington during President Barack Obama’s eight years in the White House.

When Donald Trump becomes the 45th president, Chicago will trade a first family and top advisers with deep ties to the city for a chief executive who has repeatedly called it a violent mess embodying the failed policies of his predecessor and the Democratic Party…

Not since the era of Abraham Lincoln have Chicago and Illinois enjoyed such strong ties to the White House and Washington. Obama’s exit will bring an end to that

I wrote back on November 11 in a post entitled “Chicago Could Lose Billions In Federal Funding Under Trump Administration”:

Drip. Drip. Drip.

That’s the sound of federal funds to the “City By The Lake” drying up.

A real possibility. And a lot of moolah at stake…

Crain’s editorial board brought up the much-publicized planned renovation of Chicago’s Union Station in their piece. They penned:

As City Hall pushes for federal funding to revamp Union Station—a project that will require Trump administration support—Chicago may soon learn the limits of its clout in this new era.

(Editor’s note: Bold added for emphasis)

If the presence of Trump International Hotel & Tower in downtown Chicago isn’t enough to gain the President-elect’s support for the renovation, then I wouldn’t be surprised if Trump requires the city to renounce its “sanctuary city” status and/or other concessions he deems important before federal funds are made available.

Will Mayor Emanuel be forced to “kneel before Zod”?

Stay tuned…

Bloomberg On Chicago: ‘Nowhere Will Political Power Evaporate More Dramatically’ When Donald Trump Takes Office

Election Day TV Coverage Highlights

From around 6 PM yesterday until 1:45 AM this morning, I was pretty much glued to the television watching how the 2016 U.S. presidential election would pan out. The following are some highlights from that TV viewing marathon. But before I begin, some things to note:

-While I did work for the Democrats in the U.S. Senate at one time, I am not a poltical partisan. I am both “conservative” and “liberal,” depending on the issue. Those who have followed my blogging regularly since 2007 can attest to that, where I have been just as quick to flame George W. Bush and his gang as Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, and their respective crews.
-I had no idea who would win the White House.
-My network of choice for Election Day was Fox News.

As for those highlights?

-There was a point early in the night when I thought Hillary Clinton might win the election. Initial results from so-called “battleground states” seemed to be in her favor. But Karl Rove, former Deputy Chief of Staff and Senior Advisor to “Dubya,” reminded viewers that these were the ballots from “early voting” that were being tallied, which Democrats love to push, utilizing their usually-effective “ground game.”

-The first inkling I had that Donald Trump might win the election was when Fox News anchor Chris Wallace uttered the following:

At least I’m coming to the conclusion tonight, conclusion is the wrong word, open to the possibility- Donald Trump could be the next President of the United States…


“Chris Wallace: Trump could be our next president”
YouTube Video

-I became more attuned to the political earthquake at hand when Fox News’ Jennifer Griffin, reporting at the site of the Clinton victory party, described a silent, shell-shocked crowd.

-The results kept pouring in through the night. Yet Trump still hadn’t clinched victory. However, this late evening tweet (now since deleted I heard) from Gerard Araud, French ambassador to the United States, hammered home what was taking place Tuesday:

After Brexit and this election, everything is now possible. A world is collapsing before our eyes. Dizziness.

(Editor’s note: Bold added for emphasis)

As Anthony Bond pointed out over on The Mirror (UK) website today:

The experienced diplomat would need to work with Trump and his team if the Republican becomes President, making his remarks all the more astonishing…

-While Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta came out with his “come back tomorrow” speech since a few remaining races stood undecided, I desperately tried to stay awake to see what the Trump camp was going to say. The attempt was futile, and I called it a night around 1:45 AM.

-When I woke up a little after 7 AM, I grabbed the TV remote control off my nightstand, turned on FOX 32 Chicago, and saw that Donald Trump had been elected the 45th President of the United States. I subsequently watched as Clinton supporters levelled accusations of sexism, racism, vote rigging, Russian involvement, etcetera, against the Trump campaign. Perhaps there was a relatively simple explanation for their candidate’s defeat. Basic enough that even “deplorables” could understand. Greg Gutfeld, co-host of the the Fox News TV show The Five, claimed during last night’s election coverage:

This is culture versus culture. When you’re in a small town and Katy Perry, and Lady Gaga, and Funny or Die, and Miley Cyrus mocks you for your unhappiness and for your beliefs, you now see millions of people saying, “I’ve had enough of that culture. I don’t need you anymore.” This was the F-U to popular culture…

(Editor’s note: Bold added for emphasis)

Signs Of The Time, Part 107

Personally, I believe that whoever wins the White House in November will be inheriting a “poisoned chalice” when it comes to the economy.

I strongly suspect the United States will enter into recession (if it’s not already in one) shortly.

And I fear the next (final?) stage of a U.S. financial crash I first started warning about back on Memorial Day Weekend 2007 may be helped along with the election of one particular candidate to the highest political office in the land after spotting the following this morning on the CNBC website.

John Harwood reported Monday:

One of President Barack Obama’s economic advisers will join Hillary Clinton’s campaign in another sign of close coordination between the White House and the presumptive Democratic nominee.

Jacob Leibenluft, deputy director of the National Economic Council, will become a senior policy adviser as Clinton prepares to fill out her economic agenda for the general election…

(Editor’s note: Bold added for emphasis)

Anyone looking forward to four (eight?) more years of “Obamanomics”?

If so, it sounds like that could very well be what’s in store for the country again after November 8, based on this news and other developments I’ve been following.
