Yes, the left makes it so very easy. Their uncanny ability to contradict themselves and expose their hypocrisy. However, I will admit, I applaud the left and their ability, as enabled by the complicit leftist media, to shift any narrative to their favor.
Regardless — even in these times — those Herculean attempts to message-shift are less effective in this new media age. Therefore, our weekly “Stuck on Stupid Saturday” award goes to the left for believing they can continue to pull the wool over our eyes. Well, it works on their mindless lemmings, but not on folks with functional, and operating, brain capacity.
Here is the latest: the progressive socialist left was very successful in shifting the narrative on the Epstein case away from them and to President Trump’s Labor Secretary Alex Acosta. The end result was that Acosta stepped down as Labor Secretary due to the media pressure, and attention, placed on him, and not on Epstein.
As well, there has been little-to-no attention given by the progressive socialist left — along with their media lapdogs — as to the involvement of one William Jefferson Clinton, and a few others like Alan Dershowitz, in this heinous crime. These leftist outlets have done a fabulous job in not even mentioning that Epstein was a big-time Democrat donor. Hmm, reminds me of another seedy leftist donor named Harvey Weinstein.
Why is it that we are talking all about Acosta, but not the over 20 times that ol’ Billy Boy Clinton flew with Epstein, including 4-5 times without Secret Service agents? Hmm, maybe ol’ Billy doesn’t need those taxpayer-funded agents after all? Perhaps a topic for another discussion.
Why is it that Epstein’s connections, and travel log, are not a greater topic? Who has their name on those flight manifests? There is one obvious thing, the list is chock full of high-level Democrats. Why say I? It’s simple: if they were Republicans, it would be the topic du jour of the progressive socialist left.One obvious thing: the list is chock full of high-level Democrats.

This is why we should always talk about that which the left doesn’t.
And here is something else that the left does not want to talk about. As reported by the Washington Examiner:
“Kamala Harris’ presidential campaign biography rests heavily on her career as a prosecutor, including six years as California attorney general. But it omits a plea deal her office negotiated for former San Diego Mayor Bob Filner, a serial sexual harasser, which let him escape jail time and avoid registering as a sex offender.
In 2013, about 20 women accused Filner, a two-decade Democratic congressman-turned-San Diego mayor, of sexual harassment and misconduct. Some said he put them in “Filner headlocks.”
Harris’ office drew considerable criticism in 2013 for allowing Filner to plead guilty to state charges of false imprisonment and battery against three Jane Does in exchange for a light sentence. Filner could have faced up to five years in prison, but the plea bargain instead gave him three months of house arrest, three years’ probation, and partial loss of his mayoral pension.
Some of the criticism persists today, with past lenient sentences looking less understandable after a swath of prominent men drummed themselves out of public life over sexual harassment episodes.
“The cultural change since #MeToo is having an impact of how prosecutors listen to victims now. I think it all comes down to whether we believe women and how seriously we take these allegations. In serious instances, you need serious consequences,” Maya Raghu, director of workplace equality and senior counsel at the National Women’s Law Center, told the Washington Examiner.
“Powerful people can afford high-profile legal counsel that others don’t have access to. People [such as Filner] know how to leverage the system in their favor.”
If the progressive socialist left is sooo concerned about Acosta’s plea deal, why are they not concerned about the same done by former California AG, Kamala Harris . . . Ms. “I am a tough former prosecutor” herself? I mean seriously, three months of house arrest, three years’ probation, and a partial loss of his Mayoral pension…what say you taxpayers out in San Diego?If the progressive socialist left is sooo concerned about #Acosta's plea deal, why are they not concerned about the same done by former California AG, Kamala Harris? #MeToo #JeffreyEpstein Click To Tweet
I hate to bring this up, but a real savvy White House communications staff would have brought this to President Trump’s attention. He could have “tweeted” about it, or publicly spoken out about it and asked a simple question. “Why are the Democrats [socialists] demanding my Labor Secretary step down when Senator Kamala Harris, current presidential candidate, is guilty of also giving a sweetheart plea deal . . . to a fellow Democrat?”
I would think that our Department of Justice would also want to know about all of the folks who were on the plane’s manifest with Epstein to his lurid and disgusting little fantasy island.
Yes, the left really are the ones who are stuck on stupid, as they believe we will not dig under their rocks to find their dirt. As well, it is incumbent upon us all, well, the true Old School Patriots, to challenge our progressive socialist leftist friends and just ask “what gives?” I understand that they hate President Trump, but does that now mean that any and all semblance of decency and morality is done, over, finito, kaput?
If you cannot honestly answer that question, then you are not just stuck on stupid, you are a very special kind of despicable stupid.
