Tuesday's video: Why the attacks on Senator Rubio?

A march against Senator Rubio?

In the interest of full disclosure, I voted for Senator Rubio in the Texas primary. By the time we got to Texas, it was down to Cruz, Kasich, Trump, and Rubio. I concluded that he had the best chance to win the presidency. I turned out to be wrong but that was my vote.    
Over the last weeks, we’ve seen massive attacks against Senator Rubio at these marches or even the infamous CNN town hall meeting. Remember this
The wildest moment allowed by Tapper was when Parkland, Florida student Cameron Kasky smeared the Senator by equating him to the shooter that killed 17 of his classmates. And Tapper thanked him for all of it. 
“I’m sorry, I know I’m not supposed to do this, but I’m not going to listen to that. Senator Rubio, it’s hard to look at you and not look down the barrel on an AR-15 and not look at Nikolas Cruz, but the point is: You’re here and there are some people who are not,” Kasky spat.
After Rubio answered his question, Kasky began to browbeat him for the money the NRA donated to his campaign, basically insinuating he was being bribed. “And this is about people who are for making a difference to save us and people who are against it and prefer money. So Senator Rubio, can you tell me right now that you will not accept a single donation from the NRA in the future,” he demanded as the crowd went crazy. 
So why Senator Rubio? He didn’t kill the students. He’s been a thoughtful senator. He is not known as an NRA guy. So why the cheap shots on Senator Rubio?   
It comes down to a couple of things:
First, Senator Rubio represents a huge threat to the Hispanic left. He speaks and communicates well. He is probably going to be a GOP nominee someday; and,
Second, the Democrats need 70% of the Hispanic vote to win a governorship, the Senate or the presidency.   Senator Rubio is the left’s nightmare!
So why did you hear so much about Senator Rubio? Well, he is a political threat and that’s what this is all about.

December 2006: Senator McCain and our armed forces

A post from December 2006:

As I said before, Sen. McCain is not perfect for conservatives. He has done some weird things, such as that position that he took on GITMO detainees. However, he is perfect on the big things. I love his position on the Iraq Report.

On Friday, Sen. McCain said this:

"There's only one thing worse than an overstressed Army and Marine Corps, and that's a defeated Army and Marine Corps...We saw that in 1973. And I believe that this is a recipe that will lead to, sooner or later, our defeat in Iraq."
This is Sen. McCain at his best, a leader who is not afraid to stand up to "feel good" polls.

December 2006: A view of this guy B H Obama!

A post from December 2006:

Put me down as one of those who just doesn't get it.   I don't know what B. H. Obama does to people. Frankly, all I see is a nice man telling audiences what they want to hear.

Could I vote for someone like that for president? Frankly, I couldn't. After all, we live in very serious times. I don't see a commander in chief in BH Obama. What I see is a guest on The Ophrah Winfrey Show!

Obama-mania is about putting off real problems, such as terrorists or entitlement reform. I guess that we want politicians to tell us what we want to hear. We want to feel good and avoid our problems with Obama-mania.

Let's get serious and soon!

Today's Selective memory update

Today's Selective memory update:   Back in 2001, the Clinton census asked for citizenship.  Today, DNC Chairman Perez & Rep Pelosi call the Trump idea "....a craven attack on our democracy and a transparent attempt to intimidate immigrant communities."     

By the way, what exactly is wrong with asking the citizenship question?   Maybe Mr. Perez & Mrs. Pelosi should seek an explanation from President Clinton.

A word about mass shootings in the US

Don't misunderstand.    One death is one too many.   However, is this t
he epidemic that we hear from the left?   

This is from David Unsworth:   
Since March of 1998, there have been 298 people killed in school shootings in the United States, or 14.9 deaths a year. 
Put another way, in a typical year in the United States in the past two decades, 35 states would not even have a single school shooting death, while the other 15 would have only one.
Of course even one is too many, but this is hardly the national epidemic of school-related violence that the Second Amendment-hating Left and partisan Hollywood celebrity supporters would make it out to be.    
Again one death is one death too many.   Wouldn't it make more sense to protect our schools and stop the shooter before he starts shooting?  Also, why not enforce the laws we already have, such as background checks.

Question for every Democrat

Did Facebook "help" the Obama 2012 reelection?

Did Facebook "help" the Obama 2012 reelection?   

The allegation is that Facebook voluntarily provided data to the Obama team.    

This is what Hans A. von Spakovsky, a Senior Legal Fellow at The Heritage Foundation, wrote on Tuesday:   
According to Carol Davidsen, the former media director for Obama for America, Facebook gave the 2012 Obama campaign direct access to the personal data of Facebook users in violation of its internal rules, making a special exception for the campaign. 
The Daily Mail, a British newspaper, reported that Davidsen said on Twitter March 18 that Facebook employees came to the campaign office and “were very candid that they allowed us to do things they wouldn’t have allowed someone else to do because they were on our side.”
The type of data that the Obama campaign was mining from Facebook is a more sophisticated version of the type of data that has long been provided by professional direct mail marketers – something pioneered by Richard Viguerie. 
Viguerie, for example, has detailed personal data on “12 million conservative donors and activists” to whom his company sends letters and emails on behalf of his clients. He provides information to campaigns looking for votes and money, and to nonprofit and advocacy organizations raising funds.
Political campaigns must pay for these services. Under a Federal Election Commission regulation, giving a mailing list or something similar to a campaign is considered an “in-kind contribution.”
So if Facebook gave the Obama campaign free access to this type of data when it normally does not do so for other entities – or usually charges for such access – then Facebook would appear to have violated the federal ban on in-kind contributions by a corporation. 
And the Obama campaign may have violated the law by accepting such a corporate contribution.
If true,  Mark Zuckerberg has big legal or PR problems.   No matter what, it will be very difficult when Mark Zuckerberg goes before Congress.    He will get questions about 2012 and 2016.
