Democrats couldn’t wait to pounce on the fire at Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris, exploiting the tragedy to throw firebombs at President Trump. Appearing on leftist outlet MSNBC, Rep. Steve Cohen (D-TN) told liberal buffoon Chris Matthews "What (Trump) has done to the Constitution and the rule of law is as bad as that fire did to Notre Dame." Cohen, who publicly opposes much of the Bill of Rights, declined to cite examples, possibly because he was too busy setting the 1st and 2nd Amendments on fire.
Maybe Senator Bernie Sanders (C-VT) should have taken the left’s advice, and avoided appearing on Fox News for a “town hall.” Confronted by non-softball questions, the ancient communist faltered badly. In addition to his assertion that making millions of dollars off a bestseller isn’t capitalism, he also admitted his plan to nationalize American healthcare will require “more in taxes.” Welp, that’s the Bernie show, folks. I hope they had some lovely parting gifts for him backstage.
Anti-Semitic Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) continued whining about the blowback she’s received for her repeated racist comments, claiming an uptick in threats against her since President Donald Trump called attention to her address to islamofascist hate group CAIR, in which she suggested 9-11 was just “some people did something.” Kinda like the kids from Covington Catholic, except they were falsely accused.
As Tax Day passed, Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) took one last shot at the wrong people, blaming “Trump’s tax cuts for the wealthy” for the plight of “California families.” While DiFi ignored the fact that lower refunds mean people overpaid less, she also ignored the fact that “California families” pay more because California politicians take more. Of course, when you’ve made millions without holding a private sector job, your perspective can get a little warped.
DiFi isn’t the only dummy in Californistan. Controversy has enveloped Laguna Beach, thanks to the police department’s test run of a new decal for their police vehicles which incorporates – gasp – the American Flag. Since you hate America so much, why not just leave? Secession is just a vote away!
According to Democrat Presidential hopeful, South Bend, IN Mayor Pete Buttigieg, his image has gone from “adorable” to “plausible” in just a couple of months. That comes as news to most Americans, for whom Petey has yet to reach “identifiable.”
Former Massachusetts Governor Bill Weld is throwing his hat in the ring. The former Libertarian Party nominee has announced a challenge to President Trump for the Republican nomination. Good luck, Billy-boy. If you work extra-hard, you might catch up to Buttigieg.
Senator Cory Booker (D-NJ) rocked the Democrats’ boat, declaring "We do have a problem at the southern border. Democrats should not deny that." While some suggested the self-proclaimed “Spartacus” is merely trying to set himself apart from his Democratic competitors, I can’t help but notice that Booker suddenly realized there's a crisis at the border right after Trump suggested housing the illegals in his district.
And, fresh off publicly destroying Democrat Congressmen Ted Lieu (D-CA) and Jerry Nadler (D-NY) for their attempts to smear her, conservative activist Candace Owens faced down a mob of “antifa” thugs and other liberal who threatened to assault her at the University of Pennsylvania. The media remained largely silent on the racist, misogynist hate speech the Democrats incited against an African-American woman. Sorry Candace, but once you step off their plantation, you’re on your own.
After Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) faced backlash for telling islamofascist hate group CAIR that 9-11 was just “some people did something,” she has picked up some allies. No surprise that Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has led the Democrats’ charge to defend the anti-Semitic Somali immigrant. Who better to defend an islamofascist than a communist? Che’ wasn’t available, so Chiquita Khrushchev is the next logical choice.
Ocasio-Cortez also sounded the alarm over criticism of her sister-in-arms, claiming it “puts me in danger every time.” Sounds scary. Gee, I wonder what Steve Scalise, Kate Steinle and the victims of anti-Semitic terrorism worldwide might have to say on this topic.
Celebrity lawyer and CNN poster boy Michael Avenatti has been charged in a 36-count federal indictment alleging – among other things – he bilked a mentally ill, paraplegic client out of millions of dollars. Dude even makes other ambulance chasers look like Atticus Finch.
As Attorney General William Barr hints at opening an investigation into potential Obama-era federal government spying on then-candidate Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign, liberals are furious – over the use of the word “spying.” Among those leading the word-parsing platoon: Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-CT), who demanded Barr “retract” the characterization. Blumenthal did not address the fact that there's more evidence of Obama-era spying on Trump's 2016 campaign than there is of his service in Vietnam.
Blumenthal was joined in the peanut gallery by disgraced ex-FBI honcho James Comey, who explained he “never thought of” electronically surveilling someone without their knowledge as “spying.” Sure Jimmy; and boosting a car is really just “borrowing” it.
After 8 years of exile in Ecuador’s London, England, embassy, Wikilieaks founder Julian Assange was bounced from his digs, and into the waiting arms of London’s finest. The activist was ostensibly arrested for violating the terms of his bail, but faces potential extradition to Sweden on sexual assault charges, and the United States on espionage charges related to helping disgraced ex-Army private Bradley “Chelsea” Manning’s attempts to hack Department of Defense computers. Love Assange or loathe him, you have to admit: he’d make an even uglier girl than Manning.
Obama Administration White House Counsel Greg Craig has been indicted on multiple counts by a federal grand jury. Craig is charged with lying to Special Counsel Robert Mueller about work he did on behalf of the government of the Ukraine. Looks like there was collusion, after all. The Democrats were just off by one country, and one President.
The Democrat Party’s 2019 retreat set in the luxe Landsdowne Resort in Virginia this week. The theme: “Fighting for the people.” Among the panelists, celebrity super couple Crissy Teigan and John Legend. A bunch of people who knock down a minimum of 6 figures per year, chilling with supermodels and chart-topping singers, at a resort that costs more per night than most Americans make in a week. Maybe “Fighting the people,” would make more sense.
Video has surfaced of Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) telling a meeting of the islamofascist hate group CAIR that 9-11 was just “some people did something.” Sure. And World War II was that “spot of unpleasantness with that German chap.”
Omar is defending herself against criticism over her remarks by retreating to the usual charges of “islamophobia;” even accusing Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) of “dangerous incitement” for quoting her abominable excuses for the 9-11 terrorists. That’s the important lesson here: anti-Semitic muslims are the real victims of 9-11.
Senator Cory Booker (D-NJ) has announced he intends to form a commission to study the idea of paying African-Americans “reparations” for slavery. The idea of forcing white people to give money to black people - for something that happened before any of them were alive - is becoming a central issue for the Democrats’ 2020 strategy. A “white people” tax. There’s a unifying idea.
Rep. Eric Swalwell responded to pushback over his plan to forcibly “buy back” the millions of AR-15s and other so-called “assault rifles” from legal owners. The Congressman, who is running on a national gun confiscation platform, tweeted to a critic: “Keep your #2A rights. Keep your shotguns, keep your pistols, keep your rifles. I just want to take the most dangerous weapons out of the hands of the most dangerous people.” Swalwell didn’t clarify which weapons and people he considers “dangerous,” but given his previous threats of nuclear annihilation for gun owners, the smart money is on “all.”
During a hearing of the House Financial Services Committee, Chairwoman Maxine Waters (D-CA) blasted representatives for several major banks over their efforts to curb student loan debt. The execs gently reminded Waters that student loans were nationalized under President Barack Obama nearly a decade ago; something they were doubtless surprised to learn the Chair of the committee which oversees banks didn’t know. Don’t blame Maxine. OneUnited didn’t include that in her “Banks’n’U” primer.
During an appearance before the Senate Appropriations subcommittee that oversees the Justice Department, Attorney General William Barr testified that he thinks “spying did occur” against the campaign of President Donald Trump during the 2016 election. With Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) preparing to send criminal referrals over the alleged incidents, Democrats were none too pleased to hear Barr’s concerns. The last time the Democrats seemed this nervous, John Podesta was telling them to go home, and Hillary would release a statement in the morning.
Scientists have announced that a consortium of observers making up the Event Horizon Telescope have successfully produced an image of a black hole. The supermassive black hole at the center of the Messier 87 galaxy is nearly 55 million light years away from Earth, and its mass is estimated at over 6 billion times that of our own Sun. Or approximately the size of Alec Baldwin’s head.
Federal authorities have apprehended muslim activist Rondell Henry, 28, of Germantown, Maryland, before he could use a stolen rental van to conduct an “ISIS-style” attack on pedestrians similar to the one a muslim activist used to murder nearly 100 and injure nearly 500 in Nice, France in 2016. Henry’s failure has reportedly left Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) and their compatriots inconsolable.
Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen’s departure has the Democrats throwing rocks at her on the way out, blasting Nielsen for “putting kids in cages.” The left’s smears have people wondering when they started caring about immigrant kids in cages. That would be: January 20, 2017, at approximately 12:01pm EST; or about 3 years after Obama started doing it.
Liberals are outraged over President Donald Trump’s decision to designate the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps – known to be behind hundreds of islamofascist terror attacks worldwide – as a “terrorist organization.” They preferred Trump’s predecessor’s approach, which involved secretly airlifting them hundreds of billions of dollars.
The libs weren’t done finding reasons to keep the butthurt going. They also lit into Trump over a year-old clip of him calling MS-13 thugs “animals,” claiming his characterization dehumanizes members of the notorious narcoterrorist cartel. They rape and murder toddlers, so Imma keep calling them "animals." But you do you, democrats.
Now that their Russian collusion narrative is cooked, the Democrats have reverted to a safe haven for the next round of talking points: Trump’s taxes. Although their previous efforts in this area cost MSNBC pundit Rachel Maddow whatever remained of her fleeting credibility, the left has decided to go back to demanding his tax returns. And leading the charge: Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), whose own war on Trump has gone particularly badly of late. "Welp, the Russian collusion narrative is cooked. What else we got?” "Umm - we can always go back to the tax return bit." "*sigh* get Schiff to do it. That idiot will say anything."
Failed Senate candidate, and current Democrat Presidential aspirant, Robert “Beto” O’Rourke has decided to cast his lot with the new anti-Semitic wing of the Democrat Party. According to O’Rourke, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is a “racist” who doesn’t “represent the true will of the Israeli people.” I know when I want to understand the motivations of an Israeli jew, I turn to a wealthy, Irish-American dude who's pretending to be Latino.
Former President Barack Obama’s “Apologizing for America” Tour hit Berlin like the Red Army, with Obama informing an audience: "Europe in 2019 in some ways has achieved the pinnacle of human well-being." The disgraced ex-President failed to note Europe’s rising tide of islamofascist terrorism, and new policies of jailing people for expressing opinions counter to the governments facilitating it. “You say that like it’s a BAD thing.” – Obama, probably.
Caught up in the Jussie Smollett hoax isn’t a problem for disgraced Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx. Foxx, under fire for bending to political pressure to give Smollett a pass for his byzantine pay raise negotiation tactic, unsurprisingly resorted to accusing her critics of “racism,” although many of her chief critics are decidedly non-white. Sure Kim; that Chicago PD Superintendent Eddie Johnson is a notorious racist. Go with that.
And, in entertainment news, CNN pundit Don Lemon, best known for describing white men as America’s “biggest terror threat,” is engaged to be married – to a white guy. Gives a whole new meaning to “sleeping with the enemy.”
If you were hoping a Joe Biden/Stacey Abrams ticket would rescue the Democrats’ 2020 electoral hopes, your hopes may be dashed. Abrams nixed the idea personally during an appearance on the tv gabfest “The View,” telling the audience “You don’t run for second place..If I’m going to enter a primary, then I’m going to enter a primary.” Don’t cry, Democrats. Don’t think of it as losing a ticket, think of it as gaining another loser.
During his CNN “town hall,” Presidential candidate and New Jersey Senator Cory Booker regaled the carefully selected crowd with a variety of leftist applause lines, including this howler: “FACT: More Americans have been killed by guns than have lost their lives in all of our nation’s wars combined.” CNN’s carefully selected host, liberal pundit Don Lemon, failed to correct Booker, so I will. FACT: No human has ever been killed by guns. Also a FACT: You're gonna lose, T-bone.
Booker also held forth on healthcare, pushing the liberal talking point of “Medicare for all”: "This is a broken system." Odd, because I seem to remember Obama fixing it a few years back.
Creepy ex-porn lawyer Michael Avenatti has fallen a long way from his day as a contender for the Democrats’ 2020 nomination. According to court records, Avenatti is "financially unable to employ counsel," and will rely on court-appointed, taxpayer-funded, counsel. Avenatti wants us to believe he went from advertising on park benches to sleeping on one.
Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx’s attempts to slither out of the Jussie Smollett hoax are falling a little flat. The embattled DA told an interviewer that her decision to allow Smollett to escape consequences for the hate crime hoax he tried to use to boost his salary is an example of what she called “alternative prosecution.” Yeah, that sounds way better than “letting him off because he’s rich, gay, black man with powerful friends.”
But Foxx has nothing on Smollett's attorney, Tina Glandian. Glandian told the “Today Show” that the alleged attackers may have been “wearing whiteface.” Chicago PD immediately issued a BOLO alert for invisible mimes.
Disgraced ex-Attorney General Eric Holder not only doesn’t like the direction of the country, he never did. The convicted liar told liberal talking points outlet MSNBC that he’d like to hear Trump supporters explain "Exactly when did you think America was great?" But Mr. Fast’n’Furious didn’t anticipate some of the responses, notable Vice President Mike Pence, who noted Washington crossing the Delaware, Iwo Jima, Dr. Martin Luther King’s Lincoln Memorial address, and the moon landing as examples of American greatness. Damn! Last time I saw Holder get pwned like that, he got caught selling guns to the Sinaloa Cartel.
An overflow crowd of immigrants has overwhelmed Border Patrol personnel at the El Paso, Texas station, forcing them to temporarily house people in the station’s parking lot. The move has drawn outrage from liberal amnesty activists like anti-Semitic Rep. Ilhan Omar, who called it “a reflection of what white nationalism is doing to our country.” Omar failed to explain how “white nationalists” lured people to the border with empty promises, nor did she address the fact that she wouldn’t have cared if they replaced the immigrants with Jews.
I don’t want to say the Democrats bet their farm on the Mueller Report, but following Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s admission that 2 years and $35 million didn’t knock President Donald Trump out of the Oval Office, the loyal opposition bumbled into this week like a teenager who just found out her prom date left with the homecoming queen. Considering their current circumstances, it’s fairly clear that the Democrats failed to come up with a “plan b.”
The party is wracked with infighting, with the old guard grappling for control with young upstarts like the seemingly ubiquitous Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC). That infighting was on full display Wednesday morning, when AOC visibly skipped House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s photo-op to announce the introduction of House Resolution 9, a watered-down version of AOC’s “green new deal.” Not long after Pelosi’s presser, AOC threw a shrieking tantrum over the elitist nature of her legislation, which Pelosi had already dismissed as a “dream.”
In the Senate, Minority Leader Chuck Schumer announced the formation of a “Special Committee on the Climate Crisis.” While the existence of a “climate crisis” is dubious, the existence of a Senate minority which is so terrified of global warming that they couldn’t bring themselves to vote for anti-global warming legislation – the “green new deal” lost 57-0 in the Senate, after 43 Democrats voted “present,” and 4 voted “hell no” – is painfully obvious. Even more obvious is the fact that the Democrats’ heavyweights, who have certainly made plenty of noise over what they call a “climate crisis,” aren’t concerned enough about it to do more than form yet another committee to “study” it.
In the 3 days since word leaked that Mueller was going to clear the President of collusion with the Russians – simultaneously axe-murdering the left’s primary talking point – the port side politicos have managed to do absolutely nothing which even approaches proactive policy. They’re too busy arguing over what to do about a crisis which people either don’t believe in, or don’t care all that much about, and who should lead whatever effort they finally decide upon.
Looking beyond their global warmist fantasies, the Democrats can fall back to their previous policy tentpole: anti-Semitism; a direction which has caused no shortage of intramural drama as Pelosi has tried to walk a high-wire between the rank-and-file, and the new stars like AOC and Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and Rashida Tlaib, all of whom have made hating Jews a matter of record.
I doubt victory on the global warming front would have saved the Democrats. I can almost promise anti-Semitism isn’t the savior some of them think it might be. Their party is splintering between left, and far left, and their best hope for unity died when Mueller reduced the impeachment of President Trump from “Democratic Senate majority-unlikely” to “green new deal-level pipe dream.”
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D- “Tha Block”) is the first intellectually challenged communist in the House; and Reps. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota and Rashida Tlaib of Michigan comprise the first Congressional delegation from Hamas.
