While the media and other leftist elites ignore the millions of folks living in “flyover” states, they do so at their own peril; it was this silent majority that put President Trump in the White House. Each week, Liberty Nation gives voice to the hard-working heartlanders who are silent no more.
What do former Vice President Al Gore, newly minted Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot, and former special counsel Robert Mueller have in common? They each goaded flyover folk into incessant debate over ridiculous actions. And it was not a pretty sight to behold. Making the rounds at the coffee shops and truck stops, and sparking random commentary on social media, this unholy trinity topped the list of spotting loony tune Democrats.
After I Invented the Internet …
Former presidential bridesmaid Al Gore made an appearance at Harvard University this week to send graduates out into the world with hope and inspiration. Yeah, it didn’t happen exactly that way. Instead, Gore regressed to his sad tirade of global warming, cooling, change, or whatever the correct slang is these days and predicted an end of the human race because of President Donald Trump’s “assault on science.”
How are phrases such as “the capacity of the human species to endure” on earth – after forking over years of Harvard tuition – inspiring? At least if Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) wins the presidency all student debt will be relieved in time for complete Armageddon. Who wants to meet their maker with student loans?
Gore blathered on, stressing “reason” and “rational debate,” and the entire world, apparently, were under threat from the “ideology of authoritarianism.”
It didn’t sit well in the Midwest.
Alfonso Sicairos reminded us of Gore’s dire predictions in the late 90s, “If you still believe in this clown’s lies good luck — earth should have died 20 years ago.”
Stewart Grant, a former Iowan, added his own fond memories: “Gore 2009 – ‘Polar Ice gone in 5 years’… just one of the many asinine climate change predictions that failed to materialize and people STILL want to believe.”
Norman Sigel from Ohio testified, “The weather has been the same in the mid-west for a hundred years.” Another from the Buckeye state, Cindy McCormick, showed empathy. “Sad. He just can’t let it go!!! His ‘predictions’ were ridiculous and debunked!!! Sound familiar, dems?????” But Patti Whittle went all in, asking, “Is THAT Al Gore? He has not aged well.”
And truth be told, he was resembling the late comic Rodney Dangerfield, which had LeeAnne from Oklahoma snarking and stealing from Dangerfield’s iconic tag line, “He just can’t get no respect.”
Chicago Under Bedazzler Assault
Newly minted Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot is coming under fire after one of her districts painting the crosswalks in colors of the rainbow. The symbolic gesture kicks off pride week in the city, and Aldermen Tom Tunney and James Cappleman dedicated rainbow crosswalks to honor the LGBTQ community.
Many residents thought it was a “nice” thing to do. Others, not so much.
“Great. Now people will stop for selfies and get smashed by traffic,” George Donaldson declared. Jimmy Kiefer brought up Chicago’s crime rate: “People shot every five minutes but we will paint rainbows on the streets. At least we have our priorities in order.”
The city isn’t paying for the makeover – donations came from private citizens and organizations. But that didn’t stop the chatter on the real problems facing the Windy City, which is why Alexander Vader Orda queried: “Can we fix the potholes before we badazzle crosswalks?”
Nothing Burger Bob
On demand of Congressional Democrats and the legacy media, the former special counsel petered out at his own news conference. Robert Mueller, in a sad attempt to not step on his own dangling rope, wandered down the middle of the treacherous path – and added absolutely nothing to what America had learned from the report.
But he did declare he was resigning, and, in a sense, disappearing never to speak of the report again.
What a relief. Or maybe he’s hightailing out of the Swamp for a reason. Or, as Judy Jessica-Sass said, “Something very fishy as to why Mueller decided to talk yesterday.”
But Joyce Becktel has the answer: “Yes he lied, not BARR! BARR has witnesses i.e. Rod Rosenstein that it is Mueller who lied not BARR! This is why Mueller doesn’t want to go to congress and testify as he doesn’t want to answer questions by Rep Jim Jordon who won’t let him get off easy.” Ann Emerson had the very same thought as to why we got a presser and not a hearing on the House floor. “He wasn’t under oath…which is why he does not want to testify in front of congress.”
Josh DeVore thought the prosecutor was dodgy as well. “Mueller in this nine minute statement proved that he is nothing but an inept political hack, and was out to get the president,” he wrote. “What kind of a stupid statement is ‘we could not find enough evidence to make a determination that the president did not commit a crime?’”
The heartland is tuned in and turned on heading into another sure to be rambunctious political assault – the silent majority is silent no more and gaining momentum. It’s an avalanche of conservative common sense that has no time for the hysterics and antics of the left. Is there a Democratic presidential contender who will inspire the flyover folks to vote their way? Not yet.
