From Trump out loud to farting cows, and most points in between, it’s time for a look back at the week that was. The Last Stop on the Right™ presents your Week In Review! It’s time to check the WIRE!
Whether you like him or loathe him, you have to admit President Donald Trump flat killed it at the State of the Union address. Especially the moment when he had the House Democratic women standing up on cue, “don’t sit yet, you’re going to like this.”
The House Democrat women wore white to show solidarity with strong and independent women of the past. Because nothing says “strong and independent” like dressing up in the same outfits and applauding on cue.
State of the Union points the “Women in White” did NOT applaud:
- ending sex trafficking
- ending narcoterrorist exploitation of unsecured borders
- ending infanticide
- ending a 19-year old war
State of the Union points they did applaud:
- themselves (at Trump's urging)
The speech was generally regarded as a hit for Trump, while House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was criticized for her bizarrely distracting behavior, including apparently working her dentures like a moose with a mouthful of molasses, and randomly shuffling what appeared to be blank sheets of paper.
The Democrats’ official response to the State of the Union was delivered by failed Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams, who eschewed Trump’s message of optimism to instead blast Trump, whine about past electoral defeats and tell weird stories about her father’s commute.
That feeling when both your House and Senate bosses are giving a standing “o” to “America will never be a socialist country.”
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez wasn’t taking the repudiation of communism lying down, though. She introduced a resolution this week for her “Green New Deal,” a call for the government to take over an even bigger percentage of the economy, crush the energy industry, and even dictate what jobs people can have.
The “Green New Deal” bans fossil fuels, but requires massive new tech advances. Those can't happen without plastics and miniaturization. And plastics and miniaturization can't happen without fossil fuels. Leave it to the communists to make themselves obsolete. It’s really the only thing they’ve ever been good at.
It also bans internal combustion engines and “farting cows,” while demanding major increases in farming output. Check out the Green New Deal farming equipment.
All three of the top elected officials in Virginia are facing allegations of racist and rape, all within a few days. Last time Virginia Democrats took a beating like this, Robert E. Lee had to make an unscheduled stop in Appomattox.
From our “Karma is a mother” files: Just days after he endorsed and defended infanticide, including promising newborn infants would be “kept comfortable” while mom and Dr. Mengele decide whether to let it live, or sell it for scrap, Governor Ralph Northam finds himself struggling to carry his Governorship to full term.
With Northam and Attorney General Mark Herring facing charges of racism for wearing blackface, and Lieutenant Governor Justin Fairfax embroiled in a sexual assault scandal, the Virginia Democrats may be looking at losing all 3 of the top positions in VA’s state government.
Senator Elizabeth Warren’s run for the roses went awry this week when a newly-discovered copy of her registration for the Texas bar was unearthed, on which the embattled Senator filled the “race” section with “American Indian.” Looks her campaign is scalped.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced the formation of a House Select Committee on the Climate Crisis. The past winner of Planned Parenthood’s Margaret Sanger Award explained the need for the group, declaring “We have a moral responsibility to protect God’s creation for generations to come..”
Meet Connecticut State Representative Jillian Gilchrest. She thinks the best way to prevent so-called “gun violence” is to impose a 50% tax on ammunition sales. Charging a user fee for the Bill of Rights? That’s an interesting take.
Failed Texas Senate candidate Robert “Beto” O’Rourke has plans for the future, he just isn’t sure what they are yet. The former Congressman from the Lone Star State told interviewer Oprah Winfrey this week “I'm increasingly excited about doing something.." Like what – lose another election? Flee the scene of another DUI accident?
And that’s your week in review! For the Last Stop on the Right, I’m Ben Crystal saying “always check The WIRE!”
