The Blaze on the latest wet kisses to Luntz from the anti-Trump media:
Frank Luntz says social media bans are Trump’s ‘own damn fault,’ predicts ‘with every passing month he’ll become less and less relevant’
Longtime Republican pollster and political strategist Frank Luntz slammed Donald Trump on Thursday, predicting his influence would quickly fade and arguing that the former president brought on the bans from various social media platforms by his own actions.
Luntz made the remarks while speaking on the New York Times podcast, “Sway,”with host Kara Swisher just minutes after Facebook’s oversight board upheld the platform’s decision to restrict Trump’s access following the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol.
During the interview, the pollster claimed that Trump, though at the moment still influential, will never be able to affect politics in the same way given his lack of access to social media platforms, such as Facebook and Twitter, and his displacement from the Oval Office.
“He’ll never engage in the way he did before, because he simply doesn’t have that capability,” Luntz argued. “He can’t hop on Air Force One. He cannot dominate the news coverage. He can get a sliver of it. And he will continue to do so. He’s not going away.
“That said, it just doesn’t move people the way that it used to,” he continued. “And with every passing month, he’ll become less and less relevant.”
Later in the interview, Luntz proclaimed that “Donald Trump has no one but himself to blame” regarding his indefinite removal from social media platforms.
Is Luntz whispering this to his roomy?
Apparently in that same interview, propagandist Luntz says that if Trump keeps saying the 2020 Election was a “Big Lie,” that it was indeed stolen, it will cost the Republicans the House in 2022.
Why is anyone listening to looney Luntz? And, especially why would Kevin McCarthy, the wannabe Speaker of the House, be cohabitating with this weirdo?
How on earth can we trust McCarthy’s judgement after you have a look at the video below.
Luntz, a REPUBLICAN (supposedly), has a million dollar replica of the Oval Office in his California home, and brags about using the cost of the remodeling as a tax deduction.
Luntz’s ego seems to be as fat as his head. (I don’t make a habit of attacking anyone for their looks and lifestyle, but I am making an exception for Luntz.)
By the way, who needs Facebook and Twitter!

P.S. Let me know if you see news about McCarthy moving out of Luntz’s DC pad.
Editor:I have been busy over at Refugee Resettlement Watch these days as news has picked up there now that Biden says he will attempt to move 62,500 refugees from Africa, Asia, and the Middle East to your towns before September 30th. But, issues involving abuse of vulnerable seniors move to the top of my priority list here at ‘Frauds and Crooks.’
‘The whole thing is horrific’: West Haven apartment complex promises increased security after alleged sexual assault of elderly woman
WEST HAVEN — In the wake of the alleged sexual assault of a 74-year-old resident, those living in the city’s Surfside apartments are angry and fearful, and a housing authority official said some immediate changes would be implemented, including increased security.
But residents of the building at 200 Oak St. — apartments for seniors, the disabled and others — say it’s too little too late, as they have been complaining of lax security for years.
Security is being increased at the building and future safety measures are in the works, said Savin Rock Communities/Housing Authority Executive Director John Counter.
“The whole thing is horrific,” he said of the alleged sexual assault. “I’ve got an 82-year-old mother and an 89-year-old father. I can’t imagine the trauma of getting whipped around by a …strongman.”
The sexual assault victim is hospitalized and police said she may have suffered a heart attack as a result of the incident.
The suspect, Giani Morales, 27, of Massachusetts is being held in lieu of $1.25 million bail per order of a judge in Milford who oversaw Morales’ arraignment.
“This is one of the most appalling scenarios that I have read in a police report in the 25-plus years that I have been a judge,” Judge Maureen Dennis told Morales in court.
Morales is charged with first-degree sexual assault, home invasion, first-degree burglary, third-degree assault of an elderly person and third-degree assault.
According to a police report, Morales allegedly exposed himself to the woman while near the building’s elevators, then pushed her inside her apartment and assaulted her. The woman was hospitalized after the incident, potentially having suffered a heart attack, according to Assistant State’s Attorney Alanna Paul.
As if our disgust with the Washington elite couldn’t get any worse, Tucker Carlson has been exposing Republican pollster and anti-Trumper Frank Luntz, advisor to the movers and shakers of America including as an advisor to big tech, as a weird and powerful character with a home in the DC swamp.
Last night it got even stranger when Carlson revealed that Leader McCarthy “rents” a room in Luntz’s DC apartment. Read the story here and see the segment with this hilarious meme.
Tucker Carlson reveals top House Republican lives with Google adviser Frank Luntz
Tucker Carlson explained on his show that he received a tip from someone he considered ‘reliable’ that House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy was living with pollster Frank Luntz.
Last week, the ‘Tucker Carlson Tonight’ host laced into the pollster and questioned why he ‘remained a fixture’ in Republican politics.
TUCKER: Over the weekend, we got a call from a source who said that, in fact, Frank Luntz and Kevin McCarthy are not simply friends, they’re roommates. Kevin McCarthy lives in Luntz’s apartment in downtown Washington. That’s what we were told, and honestly, we did not believe it. The top Republican in the House lives with a Google lobbyist? Come on. Even by the sleazy and corrupt standards of politics in Washington, that didn’t seem possible. In fact, it sounded like a joke.
Add Phoenix, and Arizona generally, as a place to avoid as homelessness grows for veterans and families while illegal aliens are given hotel rooms and three meals a day by the Biden (Americans last!) administration.
Take a couple of minutes to watch this youtube video below sent by a reader.
For those of us fortunate to live rural, or small town America, lives we are insulated from the deplorable conditions in most major Democrat run cities, including Phoenix where gated communities separate the elite from the homeless population.
In fact, some cities, like socialist San Francisco went so far as to sanction homeless camps to help fight the virus.
According to the Toronto Star, Phoenix was one of those cities, run by Democrats, that has normalized homeless encampments supposedly to keep the poor from getting sick.
Just for ‘fun’ search for images of homeless camps in America and you will wonder if this is really America, or some third world hell hole you are seeing.
Here is NPRon the rise in homelessness in America—even without the virus excuse.
HUD: Growth Of Homelessness During 2020 Was ‘Devastating,’ Even Before The Pandemic
The nation’s homeless population grew last year for the fourth year in a row. On a single night in January 2020, there were more than 580,000 individuals who were homeless in the United States, a 2% increase from the year before.
The numbers, released by the Department of Housing and Urban Development Thursday, do not reflect the impact of the pandemic.
“And we know the pandemic has only made the homelessness crisis worse,” HUD Secretary Marcia Fudge said in a video message accompanying the report. She called the numbers “devastating” and said the nation has a “moral responsibility to end homelessness.”
Among the report’s more sobering findings: homelessness among veterans and families did not improve for the first time in many years.
As has been the case for years, a disproportionate share of those experiencing homelessness were Black — about 39% of the total, though African Americans make up about 13% of the nation’s overall population. Twenty-three percent of those who were homeless last year identified as Hispanic or Latino.
I had no idea so many ‘people of color’ make up such a large percentage of the homeless. It seems, at least to me, that most photos of homeless people in corporate media reports show White drug-addled derelicts.
So why isn’t Black Lives Mattersupporting their Black brothers instead of encouraging more immigrants who will continue to compete with Blacks for jobs and social services?
It could get worse….
“I think we’re going to see homelessness increase,” said Sean Read, chief program officer at Friendship Place, a nonprofit that serves homeless individuals in Washington, D.C. Homelessness is “generally a delayed response” to economic setbacks, Read noted.
Nevertheless, NPR goes on to say a lot will depend on how much money the Biden administration will make available for America’s homeless people.
But, not a word about what the border jumpers will add to the cost of stemming the tide of America’s growing poverty. And, we haven’t even talked about crime growingalong with poverty.
I’m wondering what kind of world are we leaving for our children and grandchildren?
Not just illegal aliens, see that the Biden refugee contractors are out and about in America looking for fresh territory in which to place legal third world migrants from Asia, Africa and the Middle East.
So, if your town doesn’t have homeless camps yet, don’t despair, Biden’s Open Borders will surely get you to poverty-parity real soon!
Readers ask me that question from time to time as they see life becoming more challenging in states the Left is turning blue (or live in ones already deep blue).
If you like the arid West, I usually say Wyoming because it is the only state in the nation with no refugee program. Diversity through migration will happen slowly there. North and South Dakota are still promising. Montana is beautiful, but also has an expanding cabal of Leftwing woke activists.
Conventional wisdom says Texas is a good bet, but I’m not pushing Texas for one obvious reason—the US southern border with Mexico!
A few heartland states are doing okay.
If you like the warm South, conventional wisdom recommends Florida, but I would look to a few of the gulf states as good choices. And, then further north up the coast, South Carolina hasn’t yet swallowed the Kool-Aid, well, maybe just a sip.
A lot of conservatives are rushing to Tennessee, but they have no idea about what is happening in Nashville which has become a mecca for the diversity is beautiful crowd. Don’t believe me, see that I have an entire category at RRW on Nashville.
Going north, West Virginia still holds promise, but forget North Carolina and Virginia, goners both in my opinion. Most people don’t know that NC has a huge refugee population from Muslim countries. North of Virginia there is no real hope for a peaceful conservative life in the years to come.
LOL! I bet all of you are now ready to tell me your choices—please do! Send comments to this post!
But, what got me thinking about all of this again today is a story a reader sent a week or so ago. It is an article by a young woman moving out of Minnesota where she was born and raised.
A local guy at my Maryland door just a few days ago said he wished we could just divvy-up the country giving us some safe states and giving them states like Minnesota, California, New York and so on. He isn’t talking about racial diversity either, it is about conservative values vs. woke liberal ones.
And, then yesterday when I wrotethis post at RRWabout Winchester, Virginia possibly jumping on the refugees-welcome bandwagon, I wondered again, so where should one move in order to live in peace and raise families with others who share an America first world view.
Anyway….here is the story from Minnesota (hat tip:Bob). Of course, Minneapolis isn’t all there is in Minnesota, it is a lovely state, but….
I’ve lived in Minneapolis my entire life. I’m leaving Friday. I no longer recognize my hometown.
MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. — Minneapolis is my home. My happiest memories are here. It’s where I learned to ride a bike, had my first date, received my high school diploma.
But today, I’m too afraid to even walk in my neighborhood by myself.
The ACE Hardware down the street? The one that I used to bike to in the summer? Robbed twice in the past five days.
The Walgreens next to my elementary school? Molotov cocktail thrown into it.
The Lake Harriet Bandshell, where we spent countless Mother’s Days? Homeless encampment popped up next door.
How did it happen so fast? That may be the question you are asking yourself where you live?
She goes on with all of it, including the George Floyd riots and then wraps with this:
It’s easy to look at (for lack of a better word) disaster zones like these and mentally distance yourself from them. Yeah, that’s awful, but those people choose to live there. They’re the ones electing these leaders. This is their problem.
Yeah, it is. It is our problem.
And I can’t help but look around and wonder, “What happened here? Where exactly did it all go wrong?”
Was it the liberal mob? Identity politics? The cries of “RACIST!” when someone disagreed with a particular reaction or policy?
Was it conservative silence as the loudest voices got more and more radical?
Was it our acceptance that “we live in a blue area, this is just the way things are?”
How did it all happen so fast?
Whatever it was, I’m leaving this dark, surreal, twisted version of Minneapolis on Friday. And I pray to God that I never have to come back.
Protests reveal generational divide in immigrant communities
She (one of the ‘stars’ of this article) agreed that the United States offered opportunities for education and a “better life,” but she had also made up her mind that such a life would not be complete without justice for Black people.
After moving to Brooklyn Center from Liberia in 2015, she said she was treated differently as a Black person. People commented on the color of her skin, disapproved of the clothes she wore and once called the police on her and a friend for being too “loud.”
I will bet a buck that not one white person “commented on the color of her skin!” Then this:
“I started to realize like, ‘Oh, America is not what it says on TV,'” she said.
[I know what you are thinking! Maybe just go home then!—ed.]
Then Floyd’s death sparked protests, and she decided that “this was not the American dream I was promised.”
Kromah is not alone. Young people in the city’s East African communities came out to protest in droves following Floyd’s death.
Despite tension, at times, between Black immigrants from Africa and Black people whose long history in the U.S. began with slavery, protesters united around decrying police brutality they said plagued their communities.
The verse “Somali lives, they matter here,” often followed the protest refrain of “Black lives, they matter here.” And one of the most widely shared images of last year’s protests was a video posted on social media showing a protester in a hijab and a long skirt kicking a tear gas cannister back toward law enforcement officers in riot gear.
“I am Somali, I am Black American, I am Muslim,” 21-year-old Aki Abdi said. “If a cop pulls me over, he don’t know if I’m Somali or Black. They go hand in hand.”
There is more. So is it any wonder that many are leaving Minnesota!
Of course, then that leaves the question we started with—where could people, of any race, who love America and want to live in peace, find a home?
That would be in any state that is not rolling out the welcome mat to massive numbers of migrants unwilling to assimilate as they import their third world values to America.
