Under-reported Stories Catch-up (110418) — Round 2

Filed under: Lucid Links — Tom @ 11:00 pm

I have a huge backlog of items to note only a short time to note them. So I’ve gone into double-time mode, and am doing two catch-up posts today, two on Monday, and one early Tuesday morning.

These are stories from the past couple of weeks which haven’t gotten the attention they deserve. All of them should be considered relevant to voters’ decisions as to which candidates — and which party’s candidates — they should support at the polls during this election cycle:

The Central American migrant caravans area NOT spontaneous gatherings of the impoverished or oppressed: “Centro Sin Fronteras, La Familia Latina Unida, and Pueblo Sin Fronteras are all cogs in an interlocking directorate of radical left-wing immigrant issue organizing, protesting and migrant caravan formation and management.” These groups have been credibly linked to George Soros. Meanwhile, one caravan member told Fox News that “criminals are everywhere” in the group.

Nothing to see here — Just the Palm Beach (Fla.) Post refusing to accept a factual political ad criticizing Democratic gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum.

Stealing the other side’s pamphlets from residences’ doors is apparent a thing among Democrats, even some in political office. The linked article cites separate incidents in Delaware, Hawaii, and California. Yard sign destruction and vandalism directed at conservative candidates has been a thing for a long time, and still is.

On a more serious note, “A Republican running for Congress in New Jersey received a written threat that mentioned his seven children, his campaign said (on October 24).” The text of the text to Jay Webber “accused Republicans of stealing from Social Security and Medicare and running up the national debt.”

Watch Michigan on Tuesday: Incumbent U.S. Senate Democrat Debbie Stabenow’s lead over Republican John James dropped by 17 points into single digits in late October in the wake of the Brett Kavanaugh Supreme Court nomination debacle. It may also indicate a seemingly unthinkable “across-the-board collapse for Democrats in Michigan.” Donald Trump winning Michigan in 2016 was also considered unthinkable.

Democrats supposedly have nothing to do with the Central American caravans which wish to cross the U.S.-Mexico border. If that’s so, why did a Bloomberg News editorial beg the Dems to tell the caravans to turn around? They’ll never do that, as the caravans are considered politically useful by 2020 presidential aspirants like Julian Castro.

Proof that the left ultimately wants states and counties to lose control over the electoral process: The idea of abandoning the requirement that voters register is quietly gaining steam.

There’s really no need for this, as it’s already happening, and at an accelerating rate: “Coalition of left-wing activist groups calls on big tech to censor online speech.”

The left’s “believe all women” meme is really “believe all women who are accusing our enemies on the other side. This particular instance, in the wake of the Brett Kavanaugh debacle, is particularly galling: “Former President Barack Obama and other Democrats won’t comment on allegations levied against (Nevada) gubernatorial candidate Steve Sisolak by his ex-wife, including one that the Nevada Democrat bruised his former spouse.” The “particularly galling” element is how Sisolak has portrayed himself as a model single dad.

Watch Florida on Tuesday: The establishment press wants people to believe that Democrat Andrew Gillum is likely to defeat the GOP’s Ron DeSantis in the governor’s race. Not so fast: “A new poll released on Wednesday shows Republican Ron DeSantis leading Democrat Andrew Gillum in Florida’s race for Governor. Of the 800 likely voters surveyed, 48 percent of voters said they intend to vote for DeSantis on November 6, while only 45 percent of voters said they will support Gillum.”
