Everybody Loves the $3.5 Trillion Boondoggle, Says Nancy Pelosi’s Pollster

Posted on | September 23, 2021 | No Comments

Nancy Pelosi’s massive spending bill is very popular, according to no less an authority on public opinion than . . . Nancy Pelosi:

New Poll: Overwhelming Majority of Americans
Support Build Back Better Act

An overwhelming majority of Americans, independents, and even four-in-ten Republicans back President Biden and House Democrats’ plan to cut taxes for the middle class, lower costs for working families, create more jobs, and sustain economic growth for years to come.
New polling from Navigator Research shows high support for the Build Back Better Act with support from:

— 66 percent of Americans
— 61 percent of Independents
— 39 percent of Republicans

Democrats believe we face an urgent choice between keeping an economy that serves the wealthiest and biggest corporations – or finally give middle class families a fair shot. It turns out the American people agree.

Does anyone older than 12 actually believe this? Because it doesn’t take much effort to discover that this poll was published by something called “Navigator Research,” which describes itself thus:

In a world where the news cycle is the length of a tweet, our leaders often lack the real-time public-sentiment analysis to shape the best approaches to talking about the issues that matter the most. Navigator is designed to act as a consistent, flexible, responsive tool to inform policy debates by conducting research and reliable guidance to inform allies, elected leaders, and the press. Navigator is a project led by pollsters from Global Strategy Group and GBAO along with an advisory committee, including: Andrea Purse, progressive strategist; Arkadi Gerney, The Hub Project; Joel Payne, The Hub Project; Christina Reynolds, EMILY’s List; Delvone Michael, Working Families; Felicia Wong, Roosevelt Institute; Mike Podhorzer, AFL-CIO; Jesse Ferguson, progressive strategist; Navin Nayak, Center for American Progress Action Fund; Stephanie Valencia, EquisLabs; and Melanie Newman, Planned Parenthood Action Fund.

GBAO is a firm founded by four Democratic political operatives, while Global Strategy Group “began as a Democratic polling firm operating predominantly in the New York market.” To put it bluntly, everybody involved in this poll is a partisan hack, and here is the question on which the “overwhelming support” numbers are based:

As you may know, President Biden and Democrats have proposed new legislation to provide paid family and medical leave, establish a universal Pre-K program, expand Medicare coverage for seniors to include dental, vision, and hearing coverage, lower health care costs by allowing Medicare to negotiate lower drug prices, provide tax breaks for clean energy, and expand the Child Tax Credit for most families with children. Do you support or oppose this legislation?

In other words, “Do you want the government to give you a bunch of free stuff?” To which everybody answers, “Free stuff? Gimme! Gimme!”

You might get different answers if you asked other questions, such as:

  1. Do you have any fucking clue how much $3.5 trillion is?
  2. Where the hell are we going to get $3.5 trillion to pay for this?
  3. The U.S. national debt is currently $28 trillion. The most recent year the federal government had a balanced budget was 1998. This crazy pile of crap Nancy Pelosi is trying to ram through Congress will permanently bankrupt America. Do you support or oppose this?

Now, some would say that asking such questions might be somewhat biased, but is it any more biased than Nancy Pelosi’s poll asking people if they want a bunch of free stuff from the government, without even mentioning the disastrous fiscal consequences of this legislation?

Read that Pelosi poll question again — it doesn’t even mention the $3.5 trillion price tag. The idea that policy decisions should be made on the basis of such dishonest polling by partisan hacks is insane.

Joy Reid Is … Right?

Posted on | September 22, 2021 | No Comments

Nearly all my fellow conservatives are shrieking in anger at MSNBC’s Joy Reid for saying something that is actually true: There is such a thing as “Missing White Woman Syndrome,” and we ought to call it out when — as in the case of Gabby Petito — it dominates the news cycle:

MSNBC host Joy Reid turned to race Monday while discussing the media’s coverage of missing 22-year-old Gabby Petito, dismissing the focus on the case as “missing White woman syndrome.”
During a segment on her show “The ReidOut,” Reid said while Petito’s family deserved “answers and justice,” she felt the same media attention didn’t apply to non-White people when they go missing.
“It goes without saying that no family should ever have to endure that kind of pain. And the Petito family certainly deserves answers and justice,” Reid said. “But the way this story has captivated the nation has many wondering, why not the same media attention when people of color go missing?”
“Well, the answer actually has a name: Missing White woman syndrome. The term coined by the late and great Gwen Iffil to describe the media and public fascination with missing White women like Laci Peterson or Natalee Holloway, while ignoring cases involving missing people of color,” she added, referencing two well-known cases of missing women.

Yes — Natalee Holloway, whose disappearance gave Greta Van Susteren a permanent excuse to travel to Aruba for “reporting” the case.

Besides affording TV reporters a pretext for traveling to the Caribbean — “Oh, please, boss, don’t send me to that tropical island again!” — the Natalee Holloway case offered story elements that no elderly woman can resist (a) mystery and (b) a villain. Basically, it was an updated Agatha Christie novel, catnip for the post-menopausal audience that loves murder mysteries. Joran van der Sloot was the presumed villain of this tale, and all those suspicious little old ladies knew, deep in their lascivious little hearts, that the missing blonde teenager had been savagely RAPED before she was murdered by the Dutch villain.

That’s the thing about a Missing White Woman story — the damsel-in-distress angle only works, in terms of TV news ratings, if the missing woman is young and attractive, preferably blonde. Males can and do go missing, but those disappearances never dominate national news. It’s always a woman, and a young, attractive woman — if she’s old, fat or ugly, nobody cares if she goes missing. But the nubile blonde? Oh, yeah, that’s nationwide headline stuff, because she’s Prime Rape Bait, and sex is the secret ingredient in the Missing White Woman story.

Beyond the cynical calculations of ratings-hungry TV news producers, however, what’s really wrong with Missing White Woman Syndrome is not the kind of “social justice” concerns Joy Reid is talking about. No, what’s wrong is that it feeds the public’s distorted ideas about crime.

How many people are murdered in America annually? Nearly 14,000 in 2019, according to the FBI, and about 78% of the victims were male. In terms of statistical risk, then, males were nearly four times more likely to be murdered than women, but how many of those murdered men become national news? Not many. And how many murder victims are white? About 5,800 in 2019 — 42% of the total — whereas blacks were 54% of the total murders. There were 1,759 white women murdered in 2019 — 12.6% of the total, according to the FBI — compared to 6,446 black males, 46.3% of the total. So the death of Gabby Petito was anomalous, a comparative rarity in the overall crime situation in America.

A blonde, blue-eyed “social media influencer” is not typical of murder victims, who are disproportionately male and black. During the month of August, when Gabby and her boyfriend were on their excursion across the West, 87 people were killed and 424 were wounded in Chicago. Did any of those Chicago victims make national news? Well, about 83% of the victims in Chicago were black, and none were blonde, blue-eyed 22-year-old “social media influencers.” Not newsworthy, you see?

The selectivity of the news media in deciding which murders deserve national attention is a sort of bias that most people never notice. Why does the death of one black in police custody become a cause célèbre, while the vast majority of murdered black men — about 125 a week, on average — never get any national media attention? Because the death of George Floyd fit a specific political narrative. And why does the disappearance of a blonde girl with an Instagram account get hourly updates on the cable-news networks? Because it’s a convenient distraction from the disastrous failure of Joe Biden’s presidency.

Think about it. During the four years of Trump’s presidency, was there any case of a Missing White Woman that got this kind of attention?

Think of something else — what happened to all the black guys getting killed by cops? Did that just stop happening on January 20? It’s almost as if the media’s concern about black victims of police violence was just ginned up to help Democrats win the election. But that can’t be — these are professional journalists, after all, and we can trust them. Right?

Hey, New England: Roll, Tide!

Posted on | September 21, 2021 | No Comments

When the New England Patriots drafted Alabama quarterback Mac Jones, I decided to become a Patriots fan, but after Sunday’s game — when Jones led New England to a 25-6 victory over the New York Jets — I’m thinking y’all New Englanders should become Alabama fans.

Jones isn’t the only Crimson Tide player on the Patriots roster. There’s also running back Damien Harris, defensive tackle Christian Barmore, and linebackers Anfernee Jennings and Dont’a Hightower.

During Sunday’s victory, Jones completed 22 of 30 passes for 186 yards and zero interceptions — a stark contrast to Jets QB Zack Wilson, who threw four interceptions. Like Jones, Wilson is a rookie (out of BYU) who was a first-round draft pick. The Jets had the second pick in the draft, and Jones didn’t go until the 15th pick, meaning there are 14 other teams out there who passed him over. So he beat one of them Sunday, on his long campaign of vindication, and made Jets fans feel the pain:

Jones was everything the Jets wanted — and needed — Wilson to be on this day. He was poised and played essentially mistake-free in that he didn’t turn the ball over while Wilson gave it away four times on interceptions — two of which came on his first two throws in the game.
After the game, Jets coach Robert Saleh delivered the most telling and appropriate quote of the day when he said he told Wilson, “Sometimes, it’s OK to be boring.’’
Because you know what Jones was?
Boring.
He was boring but efficient, completing 22 of 30 passes for 186 yards. Most importantly, though, Jones didn’t throw an interception or lose a fumble.
That’s the most important ingredient to winning in the NFL: Don’t beat yourself.
Patriots coach Bill Belichick has made a career out of forcing opposing teams into making mistakes and making them pay for them.
The two most memorable plays Jones made in the game, in fact, had nothing to do with him throwing the ball.
One came on New England running back Damien Harris’ 26-yard scoring run, on which he broke seven tackles and by the time he got near the goal line the entire Patriots offense was pushing him over the threshold — including the rookie quarterback who’d sprinted the 30 yards down the field to get into the fray.
Another came on an end-around by Kendrick Bourne when Jones threw a nice roll block on Jets defensive lineman Shaq Lawson, taking him to the ground.

Let’s see both of those plays on video:

Alabama: Where our quarterback blocks your defensive end.

Mac Jones is a team player. He waited three years for his shot at the starting QB job at Alabama, as backup first to Jalen Hurts (now with the Philadelphia Eagles) and then to Tua Tagovailoa (now with the Miami Dolphins, who beat New England in the season opener). He listens to his coaches, which is why he wasn’t throwing bombs Sunday. Apparently the game plan was for Mac to concentrate on completing short passes; his longest pass of the game was a picture-perfect strike down the middle.

The guy who caught that pass is Hunter Henry, a tight end from Arkansas who got picked up by the Patriots after four seasons with the Chargers. Henry was one of seven different receivers Jones connected with Sunday. His favorite target was veteran running back James White, whom he hit six times, including a 28-yarder. And then there was this razzle-dazzle:

Sweet! There were two negatives about Sunday’s game: First, Jones didn’t throw for a touchdown, and second, he got sacked three times. The sacks worry me most, because the one thing that could stop Jones from developing into — dare I say it? — the next Tom Brady is an injury. The Patriots’ offensive line needs to do a better job protecting their QB. Fortunately, Mac wasn’t hurt Sunday, so next up is a home game against New Orleans and then — well, it’s gonna be the next Tom Brady vs. the original Tom Brady when the Patriots play Tampa Bay on Oct. 3.

Fake ‘Right-Wing Rally’ in D.C. Attracts Mainly Media, Undercover FBI Agents

Posted on | September 20, 2021 | No Comments

Last week, I warned (“The Post-Afghanistan ‘Pivot,’ as Predicted,” Sept. 10) that because the Biden administration “desperately needs a distraction from their endless bungling,” people were justifiably suspicious that the “Justice for J6” rally was an entrapment scheme.

Most people seemed to get that message — indeed, Donald Trump himself warned it was a “setup” — and the presence of numerous plainclothes FBI agents was painfully obvious. I say “plainclothes,” because if these agents were supposed to be undercover, the FBI really needs some new training protocols on what “undercover” means.

As I said before, organizers of the “Justice for J6” rally may have been entirely sincere in their desire to call attention to how those arrested in the Capitol riot are basically “political prisoners.” But this does not mean that they weren’t being influenced by FBI informants or undercover operatives — agents provocateurs seeking to undermine the organization they are pretending to support. In the two weeks prior to Saturday’s rally, the mainstream media was sounding alarms about how this event showed the potential violent danger of right-wing extremism.

AP sources: Intel shows extremists
to attend Capitol rally

Associated Press, Sept. 2

As Sept. 18 rally approaches,
violent language ramps up online

Roll Call, Sept. 8

Washington ramps up security
ahead of Sept. 18 rally

The Hill, Sept. 13

DHS warns of potential for violence
surrounding the ‘Justice for J6’ rally
in intelligence brief

CNN, Sept. 16

Capitol, D.C. police say city
prepared in case of violence
connected to Justice for J6 rally

Washington Post, Sept. 17

All of these dire warnings from the media — and I’ve just cited a random few headlines from the dozens, if not hundreds of “news” articles sounding the alarm about this event — had about as much factual basis as, oh, I don’t know, the “Russian collusion” conspiracy theory.

Notice how the media’s errors, insofar as they confer any partisan advantage, always seem to work to the advantage of Democrats?

Do you think that’s merely a coincidence? Because I don’t think so.

I was born at night, but it wasn’t last night.
