More Than Coincidence? ‘The Lindsey Vonn Effect’ Keeps Steamrolling Trump’s Critics

Originally posted at CLASH Daily

Karma is defined as “destiny or fate, following as effect from cause.” In Christian circles, it’s the Biblical principle of “sowing and reaping.” Time and again this simple cause and effect pattern seems to afflict those who publicly deride our current president. The trend started to emerge soon after a bevy of Republican candidates systematically were eliminated from the race for the White House and Hillary was roundly KO’d on Election Day.

Take for example US skier and Olympic gold medal hopeful, Lindsey Vonn. Before the XXIII Olympic Winter Games in PyeongChang Lindsey proudly announced that she would represent the American people in South Korea, but not President Trump. Soon after that presidential proclamation, Lindsey found herself slipping and sliding and crashing into walls.

As a result of Lindsey’s hubris, the injured Olympic darling failed to medal in her event. The disaster that followed Lindsey publicly renouncing Donald Trump should probably be called “The Lindsey Vonn Effect” for that which occurs whenever Trump-bashing culminates in an unfortunate event.

Hillary Clinton has suffered many such moments. Since she lost the 2016 election to Trump a desperate Hillary has been traveling around trying to vindicate herself to whoever will pay large sums of money to listen to her try to explain What Happened.

“The Lindsey Vonn Effect” began before the election but kicked in fully after Hillary lost and started hawking her explanatory book. In fact, in October of 2017, Mrs. Clinton while on a “What Happened” book tour in London, broke her toe after falling down a flight of stairs. The undefeatable woman who Democrats think had the election stolen from her hobbled around in a boot for months.

More recently, in India, while dressed in an ethnic outfit that looked like a cross between hospital scrubs and traditional Indian attire, Mrs. Clinton was touring the 15th-century Jahaz Mahal in Dhar’s Mandu mere hours after trash-talking Donald Trump. That’s when Hillary slid down the stone staircase. Was Hillary the victim of “The Lindsey Vonn Effect”?

And, to make matters worse, this “crash and burn” event took place just days after Hillary criticized white women for leaning on white men.

Tripping and falling isn’t Hillary’s only affliction. In fact, while out justifying her profound loss on the liberal speaking circuit, Hillary will frequently be shut down by uncontrollable coughing fits.

Hillary’s not the only one who has felt the sting of “The Lindsey Vonn Effect.”

For one, Trump-hating comedian Jimmy Kimmel has been unrelenting in his criticism of the President, especially on issues such as healthcare and the Second Amendment. Apparently, Kimmel was so busy hating the POTUS he didn’t take time to notice the negative critics-versus-Trump pattern.

Thus, after hosting this year’s Oscar show, Kimmel fell victim to “The Lindsey Vonn Effect.” Despite being directed to avoid the topic of politics, during the broadcast, Kimmel oozed Trump-revulsion whenever he could fit it in. The next day, Kimmel delivered the Academy viewer numbers that reflected “an all-time low”.

Let’s just say that Kimmel experienced ratings on par with Hillary Clinton’s gymnastic tumble midway down a flight of stairs in India.

In other words, sort of like Lindsey found out; it’s never a good idea to publicly go mano y mano with Donald Trump, especially if you don’t want to experience mortification in front of the entire world. Just ask comedian Kathy Griffin. Kathy is a woman who attempted to behead Trump in effigy, and in the process beheaded her career in real-time.

The pattern is uncanny. Add to that list Trump other critics like the NFL and Starbucks. Also feeling “The Lindsey Vonn Effect” are Trump-hating rapper Eminem who is bleeding fans, and postmenopausal pop star Madonna whose album sales tanked after ranting on about blowing up the White House.

In politics, Trump detractors like Nancy Pelosi suddenly can’t express a coherent sentence. Senator John McCain (R-AZ) criticized the president and ended up also wearing a boot that matched Hillary’s. Even Arizona Republican “Jeff Flake(y)” got caught gossiping about Trump on an open mic. Also in the mix is the perpetually peeved Trump advisor Steve Bannon, who is no longer at Breitbart, and “reality show legend” Omarosa Manigault Newman. Soon after dissing the Trump White House in an attempt to boost ratings, the occupants of Celebrity Big Brother house evicted Omarosa.

Next up in the long list of “Lindsey Vonn Effected” Trump denigrators are the always- “inspirational” Obamas. Currently, Michelle and Barry are in late-stage negotiations with paid video streaming service, Netflix, to be paid big bucks to host an open forum where they can insult Trump in front of an audience of approximately 120-million paid customers worldwide.

One week after announcing the money discussions, Netflix fell victim to an Obama-induced “Lindsey Vonn Effect.” Seems Netflix stock, which had been steadily climbing, has been increasingly diminishing in price since subscribers heard the Obama’s were going to be paid to set up camp at Netflix. The announcement met with boycotts and subscription cancellations.

Last week Netflix stock was $331.44 a share. Then, after Netflix announced they would provide Trump-bashing Barack and his bitter Bride a soapbox to spread their signature, racism, gender identity politics, socialism and community activism the “stock dropped nearly 3% in value…down & 9.35.” In other words, “The Lindsey Vonn Effect” appears to be paying a visit to Netflix and very possibly depositing itself into Obama’s ever-swelling bank account.

In the end, the sowing and reaping occurrences are probably coincidental. However, as someone who neither skis, tours Lodi dynasty period resorts, appears on Netflix, nor hosts the Academy Awards, my best advice to those who do is to tamp down the Trump criticism lest “The Lindsey Vonn Effect” come knocking at your door.

Hillary Talks UFOs and Aliens…No, We’re Not Kidding

If it’s the aliens that are flooding over the border, Hillary Clinton is correct, “aliens” have already visited planet earth. But if it’s not the foreigners carrying with them Third World diseases and toting along a smattering of ISIS warriors dressed up as refugees, Mrs. Clinton may just need to readjust her tinfoil hat.

Recently, at a campaign stop in New Hampshire, when referring to spaceships that transport space cadets, Mrs. Clinton told the crowd, “I think we may have been [visited already]. We don’t know for sure.”

So, let’s see, in lieu of a 9-year-old with whom to discuss gender pay equity, and for lack of a rape victim in the audience to verbally abuse, Hillary turned to talking extraterrestrials? What’s next, will Hillary prove the reality of the Abominable Snowman and claim she spotted the Loch Ness monster?

In fairness to Hillary though, this particular UFO conversation started up after the “smartest woman in the world” was asked to comment about something Bill said on a late night talk show in 2014 concerning the existence of interplanetary life.

It happened while Bill, whose comment was probably driven by a secret crush on Star Trek Vulcan Sub-Commander T-Pol, was appearing on “Jimmy Kimmel Live.” When asked about life on other planets, Bill said he believed it existed but cautioned, “I just hope it’s not like ‘Independence Day’.”

Picking up where Bill left off, the woman who vows to cure Alzheimer’s and will probably do it by blaming the disease on an anti-Muslim video was asked in New Hampshire about her husband’s comment. In response, Hillary reassured her audience that she would do what Bill failed to do, which was to “get to the bottom” of UFOs.

Does Hillary even know that “getting to the bottom” of something that flies above our heads is hard to do?

Either way; Hillary, who is an expert on every subject, said that the top open-records appeal for information her husband receives at The William J. Clinton Museum/Library, and occasional strip club, involves questions about unidentified objects that fly and otherwise.

Not only that, but also driving the UFO passion is Clinton inner-circle member, former White House chief of staff under Bill, and current Hillary campaign chairman, John Podesta. Hillary claims that Podesta, who looks a lot like an alien himself, is a major fan of UFO theories, which is all a liberal ever needed to invest tax dollars in chasing things like UFOs and unicorns.

Nonetheless, according to Hillary, Mr. Podesta made the presidential hopeful “personally pledge…to get the [UFO] information out, one way or another.”

That’s why, exposing the secret UFO information is an absolute must, and why Mrs. Clinton proposed, “Maybe, we could have, like, a task force to go to Area 51.”

Where is Area 51 you ask?

Area 51 is the mysterious U.S. military installation located roughly 100 north of Las Vegas where, according to a How Stuff Works article by Jonathan Strickland and Patrick J. Kiger, entitled How Area 51 Works, conspiracy theorists believe “government researchers reverse-engineered captured alien spacecraft, tried to clone extraterrestrials, and filmed the fake moon landing in 1969.”

Although Hillary keeps the location of her secret emails under lock and key, at least, if she’s elected president, a federally funded task force will be given the go-ahead to reveal to the world the secrets of the universe.

With that in mind, in an “Orange is the New Black” pantsuit, Hillary Clinton is now officially the political equivalent to Captain Janeway. The problem is that despite wanting to rule the cosmos, Huma says Hillary is “often confused” and based on her spacey comments about UFOs may be Lost in Space too.

Yet even though Hillary the UFO Hunter has “lost her new car smell”, can’t find her husband, or her way back from the little girl’s room to the debate stage, Mrs. Clinton remains determined to become president, after which she’ll immediately “get to the bottom” of the UFO mystery.

How she’ll accomplish that objective is a bigger mystery than the location of those missing emails.

Thankfully, for lack of a spare extraterrestrial hanging around Area 51, if she’s (God forbid) elected, and if all else fails after making these promises, at least Hillary will be able to distract the nation by discussing the other UFO mystery that involved the unidentified flying “lamp/book/ Bible” she once threw at her husband’s head.

And if that doesn’t work, after pandering to one “alien” constituency, Hillary can always pander to yet another alien group by promising ET that if he makes an appearance, and gives credibility to her UFO claim, those who arrive on spaceships will be granted automatic amnesty.

SAVE LIONS & KILL BABIES: The Moral Dilemma of a Dead Lion

Screen-Shot-2015-07-30-at-9.31.45-AM-300x180Originally posted at CLASH Daily

Call me hardhearted, but unlike late-night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel, who got choked-up talking about how Minnesota dentist Walter Palmer killed Zimbabwe’s beloved 13-year-old Cecil the Lion, when I weep, it’s for the 60 million human beings that have legally perished in a natural habitat called the mother’s womb.

Am I missing something here? Because in the moral outrage department something is sorely amiss.

Not that hunting lions is my thing, but here I was just getting used to the morally relativistic idea that there is no right and wrong and then, out of the blue, I find out that although killing babies is an acceptable choice, killing lions is not.

I thought it was the left’s modus operandi to measure every action against a personal moral compass. If it’s right to you, then it’s right – right? Wrong! Thanks to Cecil we’ve come to find out that there is no right and wrong – unless you shoot a lion. Then ethical relativists suddenly transform into self-righteous moralizers.

Actually, as harsh as it may sound, I’m kind of glad the lion issue happened at the same time the Center for Medical Progress/Planned Parenthood baby body-parts videos are being released. It’s very revealing what captures America’s attention.

Here we have Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards, heading up an organization that hunts down marketable livers in the womb, and she gets kudos from Barack Obama for doing so. Meanwhile, a sportsman travels to South Africa to hunt, then unintentionally kills Cecil the Lion and People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) call for Palmer to be “extradited, charged, and, preferably, hanged.”

Kill an unborn baby and get funding from the government. Kill a lion and you’re drawn and quartered by the ethical-treatment bunch.

ISIS beheads Christians and plows piles of bodies into unmarked graves and no one gives a damn, but Cecil is decapitated and the hunter becomes the hunted. Come to think of it, more tears have been shed for a dead lion than were shed for Kate Steinle, the woman shot in the back by an illegal felon in a sanctuary city. Then there was the indifference exhibited by Barack Obama, line dancing in Kenya after five unarmed American soldiers were gunned down in a terrorist attack on America’s homeland.

All of this is not surprising, because if I remember correctly the Lion of the Tribe of Judah was nailed to a tree and the lion’s share of the crowd that called for His crucifixion cheered.

Still, I don’t get why Palmer is getting death threats for killing a well-protected animal while currently 4,000, count ’em, 4,000 baby humans are aborted daily.

As far as well-protected environments go, isn’t a mother’s womb supposed to be a protected environment? And if it is, then why do incinerators turn thousands of aborted human beings into ash while the outraged fuss over one dead lion? Maybe it’s because America has been ‘fundamentally transformed’ into a nation where hunting for sport is a no-no, but killing for convenience is a yes-yes.

Sadly, based on the reaction to Cecil’s untimely demise, America is now a place where a dead lion equals hysterical weeping and gnashing of teeth while dead baby parts tagged for sale on a cold stainless-steel tray results in a corporate shoulder shrug.

The dilemma is that as a society we’ve successfully devalued life in the womb. Unfortunately for poor dead Cecil, when one life loses value all lives lose value as well, even a lion’s.

The hunter/dentist isn’t to blame; our culture is to blame because we’ve indoctrinated almost two generations to believe that having a choice trumps the sanctity of life. Now a guy who likes to hunt for sport exercises his right to choose to stalk prey, takes out that prey, and those who ordinarily justify child sacrifice being peddled as women’s healthcare get all apoplectic.

If 60 million living human beings can be legally scalded, scalpeled, and suctioned from the protected environment of the womb, maybe Walter Palmer was under the impression that shooting a lion with a bow and arrow, if he chose to do so, was not a big deal.

Moreover, how is Walter’s quest for personal fulfillment different than a woman seeking a convenience-driven abortion? Both are selfish desires that are satiated by the death of an unsuspecting victim.

Unlike the non-reaction to babies being extricated from the womb in a “less crunchy” manner in order to finance Lamborghinis, the reaction to the dead lion was best witnessed on the CBS show The Talk where host Sharon Osborne’s sentiments bordered on histrionic.

Mrs. O said that as punishment for the dentist hunting and killing “magnificent animals” he should go bankrupt and lose his dental practice. Host Sara Gilbert responded to Sharon’s outrage by waxing philosophical, opining that cows lose their lives every day, and from a cow’s point of view a cow’s life is no less important than the life of a lion.

In other words, in some circles people have the ‘right to choose’ to kill babies but lose the ‘right to choose’ if they’re hunting lions or butchering cows.

And while righteous indignation over Cecil becoming a wall trophy rages on, today in abortion clinics all across America, living human babies will be viciously yanked from the womb and discarded like pieces of garbage.
