Tuesday, January 5, 2020 -- The Big Fix, Put A Cork In It, Left-wing Violence

The Big Fix
Some commentators are suggesting that millions of people think that the election was fixed because Donald Trump has been telling them that.  They just don't get it. 
The reality is that many Americans have believed for years that the entire system – the culture, popular entertainment, the educational establishment, sports and, yes, the political system – is rigged against conservatives.
There is no conservative view point being presented on college campuses. Our colleges long ago ceased to be institutions of higher learning. They are now cesspools of left-wing indoctrination. You can count on one hand the number of prominent conservative colleges. 
The 1619 Project wins Pulitzers for its lies, while the left tears down statues of our heroes like George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and Abraham Lincoln.
The left is even weaponizing pronouns and forcing people to lie.
We're told the judicial system is inherently racist.  I don't believe that, but I do believe it is inherently left-wing.  For example, Hillary Clinton violates national security and gets off scot free.  Gen. Michael Flynn makes a phone call and almost ends up in jail.
It is easier to get a high-profile attorney if you're a jihadist at Gitmo than a conservative in Washington, D.C.
Every day thousands of police officers have interactions with criminals and it never makes news.  Very rarely those interactions result in an officer dying or an individual dying. 
If it's the latter, we will often know the name of the individual within minutes as social media transforms the individual into a martyr.  But if an officer dies, his name will be forgotten before the day is over, and his family will grieve alone.
Speaking of social media, Big Tech executives and their employees give more than 90% of their political donations to the left.  But that's not all. 
They also censor conservatives and suppress news that would be damaging to the left.  Thus, Hunter Biden's scandals were hidden from many Americans. 
After the election, when Hunter finally admits that he's under investigation and there's some reporting on the story, it turns out that one in six Biden voters would have changed their votes if only they had known what the media hid from them. 
Yes, Big Tech and Big Media did their best to "fix" the election!
The number of sports writers who get up in the morning wondering why a controversial subpar athlete like Colin Kaepernick doesn't have a fat contract is astonishing.  But let a sports writer express a conservative opinion and they will be out of a job in 24 hours.
When the pandemic hit, your church was closed but the abortion clinic was left open.  Left-wing protests were welcomed, but Christmas gatherings were cancelled.
Quick:  Think of any primetime television comedy or drama starring a prominent Christian or conservative who is featured as an admired figure in the show.  I suspect you're struggling with that one. 
Meanwhile, virtually every TV show features a variety of left-wing characters who are always portrayed as noble, decent and good who are often being persecuted by conservatives.
All of society seems "rigged" to benefit the left!
And here's the ultimate "fix" that has been going on for decades with devastating results, which elected Donald Trump four years ago.  He summed it up in his inaugural address when he declared:
"For too long, a small group in our nation's capital has reaped the rewards of government while the people have borne the cost. Washington flourished, but the people did not share in its wealth. Politicians prospered, but the jobs left and the factories closed. The establishment protected itself, but not the citizens of our country."
The crowd cheered.  But the elites sitting on the dais were stunned.  It was that "fix" and a multitude of other biases against normalcy that elected Donald Trump. 
Donald Trump is not telling tens of millions of Americans what to believe.  He's fighting against a system they already know is rigged!
Put A Cork In It!
Bob Corker left the Senate two years ago, but thinks we still want to know his opinions.  Not surprisingly, Corker joined the chorus of the Romneys and Ryans who are upset that some politicians are daring to question the election results. 
I just want to remind you that Bob Corker greased the skids for Obama's nuclear deal with Iran.  The Corker deal prevented the Senate from actually ever voting on the 2015 Iranian nuclear deal because it perverted the Constitution's treaty clause. 
Obama cut his deal with Iran's ayatollah, tamed Bob Corker and then sent the deal to the United Nations for approval.  Corker claimed he was lied to.  He trusted Barack Obama.  Enough said.
Left-wing Violence
Missouri Senator Josh Hawley is the latest victim of the left's intimidation and violence.  Radical groups affiliated with Antifa protested in front of the senator's house last night.  Hawley was in Missouri, but his wife and newborn daughter were at the Washington residence. 
According to Hawley, the "Antifa scumbags" vandalized the house, threatened his wife and attempted to "pound open the door." 
The left has done this to many other high-profile conservatives, including Tucker Carlson, Mitch McConnell and Lindsey Graham.  Our office was also included on a left-wing target list several weeks ago. 
I suspect these intimidation tactics partly explain why we have so many weak-kneed Republicans who are afraid of getting their hair messed up. 
I'm often asked for advice by people who are thinking about running for office.  From now on this will be my response: 
If you have a streak of cowardice anywhere in your personality, do not run. This is the new reality in America.  The fight for faith, family and freedom isn't for you unless you're willing to make great sacrifices to defend these values.
About That Lab
For all the progressives and sensitive media types who didn't want to label COVID-19 as the "Chinese virus," there is growing evidence that the virus likely did come from a lab in Wuhan.  Even the Washington Post editorial board now says this possibility "must not be ignored."
Why would they be manipulating the virus in a lab?  It could have been innocent research.  It could have been something far more sinister. 
But we may never know the truth.  For months, China has lied about the virus and manipulated any attempt to learn the truth about its origins. 
What To Watch For Tonight
Like many of you, I will be watching the results of the Georgia runoff elections tonight.  But given the close nature of the races in November and now, it is unlikely that the winners will be known tonight.
There are strong indications that Democrats have the advantage in early voting, so Republicans must build up a huge lead during today's in-person voting. 
Many are concerned about the integrity of today's elections.  Republicans recently won an important victory in Cobb County, and they reportedly have thousands of poll watchers around the state.
Hopefully, Georgia Republicans will get serious about election reform in the days ahead.  If they don't, they will have betrayed the voters who elected them.
