Commentary: #DavidHogg, Icon of ignorance

David Hogg on MSNBC

 

New Zeal

By: Peter Gunn

Leave it to the Progressive left to hoist an unaccomplished high school student up as their “golden calf”, their messiah, their Anointed One to deliver civilian disarmament where nearly 50 years of lies and deceit have failed.

Despite the fawning and sycophancy, David Hogg is nothing special. His only claim to fame is he was present at a tragedy. “Survivor”: is a bit hyperbolic. In defense against the accusations he was not at school the day of the shooting, a teacher came forward and stated that she pulled him into a classroom for his safety.  Ok, fine he was in the building. He did not witness the shooting, nor was he under fire. Was it a sad and frightening experience for him? No doubt, but that hardly qualifies him as a “survivor” The word was deliberately chosen by his minders to make him both a sympathetic character and to make him seem above reproach, being a “survivor” is akin  to being a “victim” and how DARE you question a victim! This courtesy, of course, is only reserved for Friends of The Narrative.

Amanda Collins who is an ACTUAL victim and survivor (raped outside the campus police station at University of Nevada-Reno in 2007) was attacked by Democratic Colorado State Senator Sen. Evie Hudak who opined that if Ms Collins had been allowed her concealed carry gun on campus not only would she have been raped but that the rapist would have taken her gun and used it against her.  But I digress….

Mr. Hogg has not graduated High school, attended college, held an adult job (or any job that I could find).  He has not raised a family, invented anything, built anything, ran for office, won a campaign, nothing. Of course he is just a  High School student and these accomplishments would be rare among his peers, nor had I accomplished anything of note at his age. The question therefore is why then is HIS voice so important?  Optics. It looks cool to have high school students at the podium and it plays well. Everything with the Left is marketing, optics, and messaging. If their position was honest and truthful, they wouldn’t need to do any of it. I also can’t help but notice there were originally more in his little authoritarian gaggle, but like TV Talent shows, the judges have picked him to be the next Progressive Idol.  If Emma Gonzales had stepped up her game and not worn the Cuban flag on her Che Guevara army jacket it might have been her I would be writing about today.

The rhetoric he spouts is nothing new, it’s the same tired crap most of us have been fighting since before he was born.  He has no experience with firearms, and nothing to qualify him as an “expert” on gun violence, its causes, or solutions. He is like a cover version of a song that wasn’t any good to begin with.  He only knows what his handlers tell him, he has not done any research on the subject (except what he is handed to read). He just stands at the mic, spews his uninformed vitriol and basks in the adulation.  Tragically, he believes that this is how his world will always be..

His latest “Five point plan ” is an essay in ignorance.  It is so easily refuted even his classmate Kyle Kashuv easily slapped it down.

His “plan” includes a mix of things that already exist, and things that would have done nothing to save his classmates (I doubt he even remembers them at this point),   He clearly copied these answers of off someone else’s paper. He probably should have cheated off the smart kid

It is completely evident to anyone who can see through the Progressive left propaganda that David Hogg is now fighting a defensive battle to maintain his relevance. Like a child actor from a cancelled series, he is just starting to learn the  sun is setting for him.

At press time, there have been two school shootings since Parkland, and neither of them have fit the narrative.  In Maryland, the shooter was engaged by police officer, Was deliberately targeting a girl who broke up with him, shot two students (which negates the “mass” definition)  and used a stolen pistol. In Santa Fe Texas the shooter used a revolver and a shotgun, both Stolen.

Mr Hogg’s cliche about “high capacity magazines” in his five point plan ignores that his classmate/shooter used the supposedly “safer” 10 round magazine.

In a way, I feel bad for Mr Hogg.  By virtue of my advanced years, I can predict his future;  All of the handlers behind Mr. Hogg’s meteoric rise to fame will be on to the next best thing any minute now.  News agencies will no longer record his every word, and he will no longer be booked on the TV shows. David Hogg will cease to be a household name.  He will go to college and be no more special than any other student. I can easily see him trying to drop names and rekindle his faded notoriety in a failed effort to ”seal the deal” as it were with a romantic interest a few years from now.   It is incomprehensible to him right now that he is simply a useful idiot and nothing more, to be discarded like an empty soda can when his use is done. What will be interesting to see, is what a 35-40 year old David Hogg will be like: will he ever realize he was just being used?  Will he be bitter? Will he realize he was wrong? Time will tell.

More Evidence of Political Coverup in Dem IT Security Scandal

Judicial Watch

More evidence has surfaced about the disturbing political coverup of grave national security violations committed by the Pakistani who ran House Democrats’ information technology. His name is Imran Awan and last year he was arrested on bank-fraud charges at Dulles International Airport in Washington D.C.  while trying to flee to his native Pakistan. Even after getting fired by some members of Congress for stealing computers and data systems, Florida’s Debbie Wasserman Schultz, then Democratic National Committee (DNC) chair, kept him and let him have access to her emails and files as well as the password to the electronic device she used for DNC business. At one point, Awan had access to the computers of dozens of members of Congress, including those on the House Intelligence and Foreign Affairs committees. Judicial Watch has launched an investigation and is pursuing public records.

The government’s bizarre failure to prosecute Awan for the national security violations he appears to have committed points to a political coverup that’s dangerous, craven and borders on traitorous. A House Office of Inspector General investigation determined earlier this year that Awan and his relatives committed numerous violations of House security policies, including logging into the House Democratic Caucus server thousands of times without authorization. The same news agency that reported that story published alarming new revelations in the case this month, concluding that “Democrats appear to want to keep the case out of court” because “a trial could expose their reckless IT practices.” It turns out that, not only has Capitol Police failed to make any arrests, it inadvertently gave evidence to defense attorneys that was supposed to go to prosecutors. It gets better; prosecutors appear to be sharing information with someone on Capitol Hill who in turn is leaking it to Awan’s lawyer.

Here is an excerpt from the news article published just a few days ago: “The Capitol Police turned over a trove of evidence in the alleged Imran Awan House cyberbreach and theft case to the defense attorneys when they were supposed to deliver it to prosecutors instead, according to court documents and a source.” Someone inside government apparently tipped off Awan’s lawyer, Chris Gowen, that a reporter was digging around for information on the Capitol Police’s suspicious mistake involving the mishandling of evidence. Gowen, a former public defender in Miami Florida, worked for Bill Clinton and on Hillary Clinton’s failed 2008 presidential campaign. The exchange of information (known as discovery) in a federal criminal case occurs between prosecutors from the U.S. Attorney’s Office and defense lawyers by either registered mail or a third-party copy service. Law enforcement is never involved, according to federal law enforcement sources contacted by Judicial Watch.

Legal experts and veteran federal agents contacted by Judicial Watch say something smells rotten in this case. The so-called inadvertent disclosure to Awan’s defense team by Capitol Police was intentional for one of two reasons, the experts assert. Perhaps the prosecution is alerting the defense of particular facts of the case to generate cooperation and further the probe into political figures. “This is possible because prosecutors are always gun shy when it comes to prosecuting political figures, especially the figures who may be culpable in the case,” said a longtime Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) official who has worked on similar cases. “They do not want to go to trial for a number of reasons, so they are showing their hand to induce a plea with cooperation.”

The second reason, according to Judicial Watch’s sources, is that there is corruption and the inadvertent disclosure was purposeful to help bolster the defense without being obvious and backing down in court. “Either way, something is up,” a longtime federal agent told Judicial Watch. “I have never heard of anyone at the federal level inadvertently handing over documents to the defense en mass like this, never happens.” Chris Farrell, Judicial Watch’s Director of Investigations and Research, maintains that “the Awan case has all the characteristics of a major national security crime, specifically, 18 USC Sec 793(f),” which carries a punishment of up to 10 years in prison. A former military intelligence officer specializing in counterintelligence and human intelligence, Farrell added that treating the Awan case as anything less than a major national security crime is either negligence or complicity. “The bungled handling of evidence is disgraceful and amateurish,” Farrell said, adding that “the effort to bury, constrain and minimize the Awan case is deeply disturbing, and points to the need for a legitimate, full investigation by a competent law enforcement agency with substantial experience in counterintelligence and cyber-crime arenas.”

The Communist Family Tree of Valerie Jarrett (2015)

A disturbing reminder of who our President chose to serve as his co-president — and why.

Barack Obama’s closest and most influential adviser, Valerie Jarrett, has never been an enigma. She was, after all, the person most responsible for bringing the revolutionary communist Van Jones into the Administration six years ago, so her bona fides as a radical extremist have long been obvious to anyone who wasn’t afraid to notice.

But a newly released report from Judicial Watch, which examines key FBI documents related to Jarrett’s many family ties to hardcore Communists, brings bold color to what previously were gray areas. The effect is nothing short of breathtaking, when we consider that the twice-elected President of our nation chose this woman—and no one else—to serve, essentially, as his co-president.

The question nobody is asking about those ‘stolen’ Hillary emails that Papadopoulos supposedly told Downer about

American Thinker

By Greg Richards

I was just reflecting on the Papadopoulos/Australian High Commissioner Downer communication which was allegedly one of the starting points of the 2016 spying on the Trump campaign.

The point at issue was Papadopoulos allegedly saying that the Russians had 33,000 Hillary emails. After that was the yada, yada, yada that the Trump campaign knew this because it was colluding with the Russians, etc., etc.

But here’s the question… aren’t the 33,000 emails that the Russians allegedly had the emails that Hillary had already deleted?

“with a cloth?”

Aren’t these the emails that she claims were yoga appointments and wedding arrangements?

It has not been part of the Hillary story, so far as I can recall, that the Russians stole 33,000 high-value emails from that Hillary server. Even James Comey would have to take note of that.

My point to you is: Isn’t there an anomaly here in that these alleged 33,000 emails the Russians allegedly have been treated as high-value intelligence whereas Hillary’s whole claim is that these were trivia? If the Russians stole 33,000 high-value emails off Hillary’s server, on what basis did Comey claim that she had violated no statutes?

And if they were trivia, why all the concern about whether or not the Trump campaign knew about them?

Comey and Mueller can’t have it both ways.

What is Treason: FBI Finally Admits It They Planted Spies in the Trump Campaign

Jim Campbell's

There is clearly no love lost between President Trump and Obama.

Though he would probably like to see him behind bars, Trump’s a good guy and likely won’t push for it on his watch.

They did it for Candidate Donald J Trumps own good, get it?

As protection against the Russians who meant to do him harm, see? 

But now, President Trump has turned the tables on the worst “Resident” to ever occupy the White House.

They didn’t bother informing the Campaign of the imminent threat, or advising them on preventive practices against coming attempts to infiltrate and destroy our democracy. 

For readers who are old enough to remember, aren’t suffering from end-stage dementia, had a television and even watched it, the above video is for you.

Publix halts political contributions ahead of Parkland students’ ‘die-in’ protest

Staring down the prospect of a public relations crisis — boycott threats and “die-in” protests included — over its donations to Republican gubernatorial hopeful Adam Putnam, Publix said Friday it has halted all corporate political contributions.

The supermarket giant made the announcement moments before a “die-in” protest planned by David Hogg, a vocal Parkland school shooting survivor and gun control activist. Despite the news, Hogg and dozens of protestors sprawled on the floor of a Coral Springs Publix for 12 minutes clutching sunflowers and signs that read “No NRA Money.”

Hogg and other students began their influential movement for gun control in the wake of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting that left 17 dead and 17 wounded. They’ve taken aim particularly at the National Rifle Association, and were angered at the news of the grocer’s unprecedented support for Putnam, who once boasted he was a “proud NRA sellout.”

At $670,000 over the last three years, it’s the largest contribution the company has made in more than two decades and possibly the biggest in company history.
