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.
The government shutdown created by the Democrat Party’s refusal to secure our borders may be collecting some new victims: John and Jane Q. Taxpayer. According to the Wall Street Journal, the Internal Revenue Service will still be able to “process tax returns, keep systems running, and conduct criminal investigations,” but may not be able to answer filers’ questions or issue refunds. As long as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi stands for the hordes infiltrating America, the Democrats’ attack dogs at the IRS will gladly take citizens’ dollars, but if those citizens are owed a rebate, or even have a simple query about their returns, they’re on their own.
And don’t think for one moment that the potential delay in refunds translates to an extension of the traditional April 15th due date; the suit’n’sunglasses brigade will still show up at your door if they think you’ve shorted Uncle Sam. Bonus: thanks to America’s medieval civil asset forfeiture laws, even if the IRS is wrong, you’ll have a tougher time getting back your scratch than a cop killer does getting a free pass to Californistan.
As if we needed another reminder of where Americans stand on the left’s list of priorities, there are no plans to halt the billions of dollars taken from us and handed to illegal aliens. Sorry Tom, Dick, and Harriet, but Tomas, Diego, and Jorge outrank you these days.
The illegal alien accused of murdering Officer Ron Singh of the Newman, CA police enjoyed a great deal of help evading justice, and all of it will make you angry.
Gustavo Perez Arriaga, already in the United States illegally, was apprehended after a 2 day manhunt which caught up to him near Bakersfield, CA. Arriaga, who has been linked to the violent Surenos street gang, was apparently trying to run to Mexico, and got helping hands from no fewer than 7 people, all of whom are also illegally trespassing on American soil.
NOT facing justice for their role in Arriaga’s flight from justice: Democrats and associated hate groups who have not only fought efforts to rein in the invasion of violent illegal aliens, but have also actively obstructed them through so-called “sanctuary” laws. In Californistan, Governor Jerry Brown, Senator Kamala Harris, and many other statewide elected officials endorse protecting illegal aliens from consequences. Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf even tipped off illegals to upcoming ICE sweeps, sheltering monsters like Arriaga so they can plan their next assault on decency without the hassle of visits from those pesky CBP agents.
People are being slaughtered in the streets by violent foreign invaders, and the left has cast their lot with the slaughterers. Where is the sanctuary for the slaughter-ees?
The Democrat Party’s insistence on providing sanctuary to illegal aliens did everything but pull the trigger for the animal who murdered Officer Singh. Funny how the Dems shriek about “family separations” until the family getting separated is an American cop’s family.
If only there was some kind of barrier preventing criminals from infiltrating our borders. Like a bulkhead, or something…
GLOBAL WARMISTS GONE WILD!
There was a time when Meet the Press was considered the gold standard of weekend chatfests. Now, it’s just another dumping ground for Democrat Party talking points.
Chuckles the Clown turned his show over to Nancy Pelosi’s latest ploy, subjecting viewers to an entire hour of global warmist pseudoscience claptrap; even proudly crowing about denying airtime to anyone who doesn’t adhere to the party line. So what if 50 year of warmists’ predictions have been wrong?
Forget about the immigration crisis; tune in to watch Californistan Governor Jerry Brown yammer about the so-called “climate crisis,” but neglect to address how his “sanctuary” policies just got a cop murdered by an illegal alien. Today on Meet the Press: Science class with Governor Cop Killer!
As an aside, calling people outside the cult of global warming “climate deniers” is no less ridiculous than global warming.
