Nothing more, nothing less.
A study by New York University professor John V. Kane published in the latest edition of Public Opinion Quarterlyappears to suggest that most liberals care far more about winning elections than they do about principles and consistency.
According to The Washington Times, the study specifically found that, “(w)hen it comes to voter ID laws, Republicans care intensely about fraud while Democrats worry more about whether their own party will come out ahead”:
Republicans respond to even small reports of voter fraud, seeing them as a reason to back stricter voting access. … Democrats, meanwhile, generally support voter-ID but their support is less firm. If told the GOP would suffer from stricter voter-ID laws, Democrats become more supportive, Mr. Kane found.
“There’s different concerns in both camps. Republicans really do appear to be super-concerned about fraud and Democrats not so much. Democrats really appear to be concerned about the electoral implications, not so much fraud,” Mr. Kane told The Washington Times
Kane uncovered these results by asking voters about their support for voter ID laws. He found that Republicans never wavered in their support, regardless of whether the laws stood to benefit their party.
Among liberals, on the other hand, support surged “when told Democrats would benefit, and plunged when told Republicans would benefit,” according to the Times.
Shocking, right? Not really. If you ask me, this explains everything about liberalism and its convoluted goals.
Why do liberals oppose illegal immigration? Because more illegals means more votes for the Democrat Party.
Why do liberals oppose cracking down on welfare fraud? Because more spoiled leeches means more votes for the Democrat Party.
And why do liberals oppose the GOP’s tax bill? Because happy voters means fewer votes for the sleazy, corrupt Democrat Party.
Bing, bang, boom.
That, ladies and gentlemen, is liberalism in a nutshell.
It’s no mere coincidence that many of President Donald Trump’s most strident adversaries hail from California. Hillary Clinton overwhelmingly won the vote from America’s largest colony of moral reprobates and filthy degenerates and they’re not going down without a fight.
At times it even seems like the Golden State’s contingent of lawmakers in Congress are at the tip of the spear of most of the serious efforts to delegitimize Trump and drive him from office.
All of the following continue to play key roles in undermining the legitimately elected POTUS and are given a disproportionate amount of face time in the media:
Senators Dianne Feinstein and Kampala Harris and Representatives Nancy Pelosi, Adam Schiff, Maxine Waters, Ted Lieu, Barbara Lee, Eric Swalwell, Zoe Lofgren and Brad Sherman among others.
Then there is Congresswoman Jackie Speier who is invoking the Führerprinzip in a ridiculous claim that Trump is working to eliminate every component of the government with the exception of the presidency.
I am concerned that the President is trying to shut down every branch of the federal government except for the presidency.
Via the Washington Examiner ”Jackie Speier: Trump ‘systematically trying to shut down every possible branch of government but the presidency’”:
Rep. Jackie Speier, D-Calif., said she is worried that President Trump is attempting to “shut down” all vestiges of the federal government other than the presidency, effectively paving the way for a dictatorship.
The congresswoman pointed to Trump’s recent attacks against the Justice Department and FBI as evidence.
I am concerned that the president of the United States is systematically trying to shut down every possible branch of government but the presidency,” Speier said on MSNBC on Tuesday. “So you got him attacking the judiciary, you have him attacking the CIA, you have him attacking the Department of Justice, the FBI. I mean this is the conduct of someone who could become a tyrant if we don’t step in and speak out against him.”
When asked about these smears Speier said in a separate interview with CNN that Trump “does not respect the rule of law,” and warned that he does not respect “the various agencies that are charged with responsibility of protecting us.”
Speier, who is a member of the House intelligence panel, also recently raised the alarm about what Trump may do to undermine special counsel Robert Mueller, whose team is investigating Russian interference in the 2016 election and possible collusion between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin.
Alas, Speier is a liar.
Trump’s beef is with the remnants of Barack Obama’s politicized and weaponized Intelligence Community and particularly the FBI and Justice Department that served as his personal KGB. He also isn’t down with activist judges from the ninth circuit court putting the lives of Americans in peril by continuing to obstruct a sensible set of travel restrictions on a handful of countries that are terrorist factories.
Speier had no quarrels with Dear Leader when he lambasted the conservatives on the Supreme Court during a State of the Union address. Nor did she bat an eye when Obama unleashed the IRS against conservatives and Tea Party groups. She swallowed her tongue when Obama’s CIA hacked into congressional computers nor when he went after journalists and whistleblowers using the 1917 Espionage Act.
And that’s only a very short list of Obama’s dictatorial moves.
It is no coincidence that three of the Californians listed above – Schiff, Swalwell and Speier – happen to sit on the House Intelligence Committee that has spent nearly a year investigating Trump based on the phony Fusion GPS/Christopher Steele dossier and produced not one iota of evidence that the Russians conspired with him to overturn the will of California in the election.
The real bug up Jackie Speier’s ass? The Electoral College worked.

Uber’s chief brand officer Bozoma Saint John told CNN on Sunday that she wants white men to recognize that a bunch of white guys working together in an office is a problem which they need to fix.
Bozoma Saint John, Uber’s chief brand officer, called on white men to help diversify their workplaces.
“I want white men to look around in their office and say, ‘Oh look, there’s a lot of white men here. Let’s change this.'”

“I want white men to look around in their office and say, ‘Oh look, there’s a lot of white men here. Let’s change this,’” Saint John said at the SXSW festival on Sunday.
Saint John said the onus should not be on people of color to improve diversity at work: “Why do I — as the black woman — have to fix that? There’s 50 of you, there’s one of me. Ya’ll fix it. … Everybody else needs to make the noise — I want white men to make the noise.”
Wait, I thought white people weren’t supposed to act as “white saviors”?
