Question:  Why was Claire McCaskill practically alone among democrats in tweeting out this yesterday

generating angry responses like this from leftists like this

and this

and this

and this

and this

forcing her to send out responses like this

and this

in the face of angry leftists?


McCaskill knows that unlike Kellogg’s which has to market to an entire nation and thus has to worry if said tweeters might (like me) no longer be buying their products hers is a niche market within the state of Missouri against a party that likely won’t be foolish enough to let Democrats pick their nominee.

She was one of the few swing state senators to survive her vote for Obamacare she’s going to do her best to survive once again and she does this by playing the long game:

According to the US census Missouri has a black population of 11.7%. It has a hispanic population of 3.4% Additionally while Democrats have been winning the Governor’s mansion since Missouri have held the governor’s mansion since 2009 both the House and Senate in the state have gone Republican since 2003.

In other words Missouri has been trending red and while the media has been giving a lot of latitude to protesters in Ferguson, riots by left leaning mobs and attacks on police are not likely to cause the state to turn any bluer anytime soon.

So seeing the lay of the land and understanding that the next senate election she is facing is in a midterms she had to quickly establish her independence from the two most unpopular Democrats in the nation, Harry Reid and Barack Obama.

You might say: But DaTechGuy Barack Obama was very popular? My answer. Clever Claire McCaskill knows fake news when she sees it.

So she will rejoice in stories like this and posts like thisand highlight them to distance herself from the violent protests because regardless of the face she presents to the twitter world the radicals in her state who turned a thug like Michael Brown into a gentle giant know that the reality is she has their back.

Lucky for us most Democrats aren’t as smart as her.

Closing thought, If I was running the RNC or a conservative pac I’d encourage donors to quietly start financing a radical leftists, possibly a black nationalist to primary her and point to this event as a reason to do so. However I suspect with a Romney now calling the shots that thought will never come to mind.

You know Christopher Harper & I are old enough to remember when these kinds of things were done by the media

But because the media have become democrats with bylines such things are left to James O’Keefe and Project Veritas

Well it’s kind of sad that this kind of work has to be done by a James O’Keefe vs the MSM but if I’m wrong about the MSM & the “Democrats with bylines” bit and given their claimed commitment to real news, an actual plot to release acid at events, chain up DC subways, and assault people at the inauguration , particularly with said revelations on video, might just be considered newsworthy by places like CNN:

and CBS

and NBC

and ABC (whose ads kept overriding the results forcing me to use the ad blocking Brave Browser in order to see them)

and PBS

and the NYT

Or perhaps not.

But even if national news services didn’t cover it, you would think surely the Washington Post would carry the story if not because of it’s national importance but because it affects their local metro area


You would think wrong.

Remember these are searches of their web sites. So not only are they not covering this in print or on camera, not a one of them even bothered with a throw away piece buried online.

I guess well have to wait for Trump to tweet the story out for them to cover it.

If you wonder why this administration calls the MSM fake news and likes DaTechGuyblog’s reporting more than theirs, you don’t have to wonder anymore.

Closing thought, it’s interesting to note via several of the graphics that during the presidential campaign the networks seemed to be willing to coordinate attacks on O’Keefe to hide the evidence of Democrat operatives trying to foment violence at Trump events

Closing thought 2. I guess this proves Christopher Harper’s point:


All told, journalists did seem to be better once upon a time. At least my students and I will be able to delve into what once was to determine if we can use the lessons of the oldies but goodies to adapt to today’s environment.

Yesterday we wrote about democrats continuing to duck the inaugural and continuing to call Donald Trump “illegitimate”

Well apparently James O’Keefe has discovered that leftist groups in DC are taking this to heart.

So given this very public stance by the Democrats on Trump’s legitimacy and the video of these leftists planning criminal violence I’ve sent the following letter to both of my senators via email:

Good Evening:
As you might be aware several members of congress from your party have said they were boycotting the inauguration of Donald Trump, several from John Lewis to one of the candidates for DNC chair have stated that the president elect is not legitimate.
However you might not be aware that a group of people are apparently running with this planning on criminally disrupting the inauguration even to the point of deploying butyric acid to disrupt gatherings.
Therefore I have the following questions:
1.  Will you publicly declare that Donald Trump is the legitimately elected president of the United States?
2.  Will you publicly disavow any group or individual attempting to criminally disrupt the inauguration or events surrounding it based on Donald Trump being an “Illegitimate President” and condemn any such acts
3.  Will you publicly call upon other elected democrats, regardless of their opinion of President Elect Trump to do the same?
Be Aware that this email is being published and later this week I will be publishing your response if any to it.
Thank you

Incidentally to any of you objecting to me calling on these senators to disavow this, let me remind you of the Todd Akin rule that was applied to republicans namely that it is valid journalism to demand that republicans comment and condemn any statement by any republican anywhere that the press might find objectionable.
Well I find violence against the inauguration objectionable.
I think it would be a good idea for you to contact the offices of any Democrat senators and reps too and ask them the same questions I have, particularly John Lewis and his crowd.  Let’s get them on the record either supporting or denouncing this violence

I’ll let you know what they say, if anything later this week.
